What do you get when you combine Robot Chicken and some real chill gangsta music? Although it may be hard to actually fathom an answer to that strange question, Freddie Gibbs shows us some possibilities on his latest single On One. Off the Adult Swim Singles Program (Presented by Kia and available now), Freddie Gibbs brings us a sound far different from anything that would find its way onto the radio dial. Produced by Josh The Goon & Speakerbomb, the instrumental may remind you of that West coast bump that you would hear someone like Xzibit rapping over. With heavy bass and that trademarked high pitch synthesizer, this freestyle series alum and Michael Jackson hometown sharer (Gary, Indiana) might surprise some with a distinctly left coast flow that fits perfectly with the riding beat. With a new mixtape, Str8 Killa No Filla, out today, a controversial interview with Complex on the way and his Str8 Killa EP dropping on August 3, Freddie Gibbs is a name you’ll be hearing a lot in the coming week. Even if you’re watching cartoons.
