Freddie Gibbs Takes Drake’s CLB Intro to Task on “Vice Lord Poetry”

Triple S Exercise.

While he puts in work on his next project(s), Freddie GIbbs took some time out to kick some rhymes over Drake’s CLB intro. And, man… did he kill it.

Swapping “Champagne Poetry” for some “Vice Lord Poetry,” Gangsta Gibbs proceeds to treat the Masego-sampling record like a punching dummy as he gloriously floats over both halves of the song while touching on his past issues with Rick Ross, being snubbed at the Grammys (“I had album of the year, you can ask Nasir”).

One interesting note, Gibbs gets things started by rapping, “I was Big Rabbit before the birth of my son/ The Earth ain’t big enough for both of us, you gotta get done/ They say they smoking Top 5’s, but you ain’t burn through the one” – which, is seemingly a direct response to Kendrick Lamar’s latest verse on Baby Keem’s “Family Ties,” where he said he was “smoking Top 5’s.” Could be nothing, but that stuck out to me.

Press play and enjoy.
