Last month, rapper Freddie Gibbs was beat up, by rival rapper Jim Jones, while inside a posh Miami restaurant. Now Media Take Out has learned that Freddie was attacked last night, shortly before a performance in Buffalo, NY.
The city of Buffalo is still reeling, over the terrorist attack yesterday – carried out by a White supremacist terror cell. But while the city is in mourning . . . the streets are still hungry.
Media Take Out learned that Freddie went to a local barbecue restaurant to eat, and he was confronted by a group of men. The street dudes reportedly beat up Freddie, and stole his chain. According to eye witnesses, the robbers did not brandish a weapon, they just took Freddie’s jewels with their bare hands.
Here is a person describing what went down on Twitter:
Freddie is a rapper from Gary, Indiana. After initially being signed to Interscope Records in 2006, Gibbs recorded his debut studio album under the label. However, he was eventually dropped and the album was cancelled. Gibbs later signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE World and released a number of mixtapes through the label, including 2012’s highly acclaimed Baby Face Killa.
After leaving CTE in early 2013, Gibbs formed his own label, ESGN, which was also the name of his debut studio album released in June of that year. Since then, he has gone on to release four solo studio albums, as well as four collaborative albums, two with Madlib (as MadGibbs): Piñata (2014) and Bandana (2019), and two with The Alchemist: Fetti (2018) (also a collaboration with rapper Curren$y) and Alfredo (2020), the latter of which received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
