It's no secret that we here at Wolf's Head are big Freddie Gibbs fans. You may recall the in-store we did with him earlier this year.
So you can imagine our excitement when we woke up to the news today that his newest album, "Shadow of A Doubt" has an official release date, and a video for his new Boi1da-produced joint, "Fuckin' Up The Count" (below). Gibbs rose to prominence after being dropped by Interscope in 2007, and other than a brief stint at Jeezy's CTE imprint, his meteoric rise has been 100% independent. He is currently selling out shows both domestically and internationally, and is the definition of self-made success in the world of hip-hop. One man, given up on by the suits in the office buildings, who went from nothing to one of the most respected lyricists of this generation.
You can pre-order "Shadow of A Doubt" HERE, before its November 20th release via ESGN/Empire. Take it from someone who's heard the project in its entirety: It's worth every penny.
