Freddie Gibbs isn’t the type to mouth motivational platitudes but, when looked at in the right light, his story is downright inspirational: if a G from the impoverished city of Gary, Indiana can raise himself up from the criminal life to become a buzzing rapper, lose it all, then come back bigger than ever, “anything is Possible.” On the latest song release off L.A. Leakers’ new compilation mixtape, Gibbs showcases the serene self-confidence of a hustler who’s seen it all as he laces Cookin’ Soul‘s mellow Southern grooves with street-level snapshots of the grind. Complete with guest contributions from a few of Gibbs’ own ESGN signees, this is just one of many quality jams to be found on Draft Picks 2013, available now for free digital download.
