Marijuana dilettantes who got their fill of THC on Tuesday can feel free to sit this one out; Personal OG, the latest leak off Freddie Gibbs’ Str8 Killa No Filla mixtape, is for the serious weed addicts only. Pairing dreamy synth ambiance with a subdued percussion rhythm, Block Beattaz keep it minimal on the production tip, leaving the focus squarely on the Gary, Indiana representative’s rhymes, and for good reason – few emcees can rhapsodize about burning the herb with as much eloquence (and in such an impressive variety of rapid-fire flows) as Freddie Gibbs. Even if you don’t happen to smoke 12 blunts a day, you can’t deny this Midwesterner’s impeccable-as-ever mic skills. Gibbs’ highly-anticipated mixtape is scheduled to hit the ‘net sometime next month. In the meantime, those who haven’t already should be sure to check out Gangsta’s recent, Booth-exclusive interview with DJ Z.
