Freddie Gibbs recently signed with Warner Records, ending his amazing run as an independent artist. The 2020 Grammy nominee is now ready to release an album under his new label.
During an exclusive interview with MixMag, the rapper revealed that his forthcoming album will be titled ‘SSS’ and is produced by Pharrell, Madlib, Hit-Boy and Mike WiLL Made It. Gibbs however failed to tell us what the acronym stands for so that remains a mystery till the project arrives.
“It’s another album of the year. I’m about to go and work with Pharrell next week. Madlib, Working On Dying, The Alchemist, Sevn Thomas, Hit-Boy, I just talked to [Mike Will Made It]. It’s gonna be the best produced album that I ever made,” he said.
He also spoke briefly about his former label Interscope before he went independent and his experience of re-signing with a new label. “Re-signing to a major is a f*ck you to people who own this,” he concurs. “Now we get to do this on our own terms. [Interscope] gave me the worst deal ever. Now, I dictate what I wanna do to a label, because I’m Big Boss Rabbit.”
