DJ Paul, Scarface, and Raekwon will also appear on Freddie Gibbs’s new album, “SSS.”

It’s been roughly two years since Freddie Gibbs unleashed his Grammy-nominated album, Alfredo alongside The Alchemist. 

Though he’s expanded into stand-up and acting in the past two years, the rapper formally announced that his highly-anticipated major label album, SSS, is due out on Sept. 30th.

Following the release of “Too Much” ft Moneybagg Yo, fans have wondered what direction the Gary, IN native would be heading next.

What is Freddie Gibbs famous for?

Freddie Tipton (born June 14, 1982, in Gary, Indiana), better known as Freddie Gibbs, is an American rapper best known for being one of XXL Magazine’s ten Freshmen of 2010.

He was previously signed to Interscope Records before being let go from his deal without an official record being released.

He has released five mixtapes since his first in 2005 including Live From Gary, Indiana, Big Bizness, The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs, midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik and Str8 Killa No Filla. The Str8 Killa EP was released 3rd August. His debut LP Baby-Faced Killa and The Devil’s Palace, a collaborative project with The Alchemist, were both released in 2012. He then would go on to release Cold Day in Hell in 2012, and ESGN in 2013.

In 2014, Gibbs released Pinata, a collaborative album with producer Madlib, and The Tonite Show, another collaborative album with The World’s Freshest. Gibbs newest album Shadow of a Doubt is planned to best released on November 20th via ESGN / EMPIRE.

Hailing from Gary, Indiana, a place whose murder and crime rates have ranked it several times at the top of the “Most Dangerous Cities” list, Freddie Gibbs is the true definition of a street survivor.

Raised on Gary’s east side, Gibbs lived the hard life firsthand in a run-down industrial community plagued with vice and ignored by the establishment. After playing at Ball State on a football scholarship, Gibbs was kicked out of college.

Over the next few years he went through court-ordered boot camp, joined and got discharged from the military, and held down a series of 9 to 5 jobs without success. Feeling like the system had failed him, Gibbs turned to hustling; pimping and selling crack out of a local house. Inspired by rappers like UGK, The Geto Boys, and 2Pac, Gibbs started rhyming about his life and the issues facing urban youth in Gary and the countless other impoverished cities just like it. Gibbs is the first rapper signed to a major label from Gary.
