Freddie Gibbs New Album: 'Str8 Killa'

Freddie Gibbs is a rapper from Gary, Indiana who rose to fame in the underground hip-hop sensation after releasing two mixtapes and a major record deal fell through. Now, he's released a 21-track mix tape called Str8 Killa No Filla, and an official debut EP called Str8 Killa. Both have been given great reviews.

The Washington Post review reads: "In any form, "Killa" justifies the hype. Gibbs is an agile rapper, fluent in double-time, rapid-fire wordplay, and a not-half-bad singer besides."

Freddie was signed by Interscope Records but was let go from the label without ever releasing an album. After that ordeal he released the two mix-tapes -- The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs and midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik -- which garnered him lots of attention from hip-hop fans as well as indie kids.
