(AllHipHop News) If you listen to just six bars of any Freddie Gibbs verse it becomes abundantly clear that he holds his tongue for no one and voiced his opinions recently on Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI’s “The Morning Riot” show.

The former Corporate Thugz Entertainment artist spoke on his former boss, Young Jeezy’s inability to help promote:
“I felt like I was wasting time pushing someone else’s brand when I could push my own and do my own thing. Because that’s was what he was concerned with, pushing Jeezy. So I gotta be concerned with pushing Gibbs.”]
Gangsta Gibbs also hints at financial improprieties on Jeezy’s part as an additional catalyst to his departure. “So since we not in the street,” the Baby Face Killa MC says “you feel like you can play with my money on this Rap side and there ain’t gon’ be no repercussions?” Gibbs signed to the CTE label in 2011 after a string of critically acclaimed buzzworthy mixtapes such as 2009’s now-ironic The Labels Tryin’ To Kill Me and 2010’s St8 Killa No Filla.
The Gary, Indiana native also took offense to T.I.’s recent comments in The Source about how gangsta rap is dying. Gibbs states he “totally disagrees” with T.I.’s statement and questions his true appreciation for the gangsta rap artform:
I think guys like him are supposed to be the staples of this gangsta rap. If you keep saying it’s dead, it’s dead, it’s dead, then you’re going to let it die. You grew up on it, so how you gonna say something’s dead when you grew up on it?

While Jeezy and T.I. get their share of Gibbs vitriol, but it’s the Maybach Music Group head honcho who gets the brunt of his tirade. When asked about Rick Ross’ recent shooting, Gibbs jokingly asked “did he got shot at” before explaining his backhanded concern for Rozay’s health after the shooting:
“I really don’t want to see none of these guys get murdered because I don’t want to see them jump to legend status. It seems like when you die, all of a sudden, ‘He’s the greatest of all time.’ … I don’t think a bullet should buy you that — I think a bullet has buying a lot of guys street credibility and I don’t think a bullet should buy you that.”
Gibbs’ discontent with Ross dates back to a 2010 interview with Complex where he accused the God Forgives, I Don’t MC of “bold face lying on records.”
The unsigned free agent is gearing up for a productive 2013. In addition to his long-awaited collaborative album with Madlib, Cocaine Pinata, he also plans on releasing a mixtape entitled Eastside Slim and an album tentatively titled Necktie Party.
