Freddie Gibbs Has ‘Nothing Against Lil B,’ Will Still Fight
During a performance in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Wednesday (April 27), Gibbs dissed Lil B and his Based God movement, which he had previously referred to as a “minstrel show.” But Gangsta Gibbs is saying that he has “no issue with any rappers,” and was merely stating an opinion as a music fan.
“I don’t have nothin’ against what Lil B or anybody is doing,” Gibbs tells Billboard.com. “You a black man and you out here generating capital and generating money for your family through rap, I’m all for it. That you deliverin’ a message that I don’t agree with, I’m definitely gonna say that, ’cause if I don’t say something then nobody gonna say nothin’. I don’t really care if I get backlash from it.”
The 29-year-old rapper, who officially signed to Young Jeezy‘s CTE label earlier this month, continued in similarly unapologetic fashion, claiming he means no disrespect, but is willing to duke it out if anyone disagrees.
“I’m not gonna beat him up when I see him,” Gibbs said of Lil B, who has received death threats after revealing he would title his new album ‘I’m Gay. “I don’t feel like I disrespected [anyone]. If somebody feel disrespected, then they can come talk to me about it and we can talk it out. And if talkin’ don’ get where they want to go, then we can fight it out.”
Freddie Gibbs released a preview video of his new collaboration with Young Jeezy ‘Stripes (Run D MC)’ yesterday, which is scheduled to appear on Jeezy’s long delayed fourth album ‘Thug Motivation 103.’
