Barby - Derech Kibuts Galuyot 52, Tel Aviv,
Freddie Gibbs, one of the hottest names in contemporary hip hop, arrives on November 7 for one performance at the Barbeque Club in Tel Aviv.
Gibbs will be arriving in Israel on a show that will accompany his second album as a duo with legendary producer Madlib, “Bandana,” which reaps praise for both hip-hop and alternative, and has already become a serious candidate for this year’s rap album this summer.
In 2014, Freddie Gibbs surprised the hip-hop world with Madlib’s release of the “Pineapple” album, which retained Gibbs’ well-known rugged street style, but gained through collaboration with one of the world’s leading producers for a new level of sophistication. This album did reveal his talent to a wide and new audience, but this year Gibbs completed it completely when he released the sequel and masterpiece “Bandana” which includes songs with Anderson Puck, Pusha Tee, Kyler Mike and Moss Duff.
Gibbs’ career, one of the most successful independent rappers today, actually began with the cancellation of a record label contract that the rapper thought would not succeed in his life. Despite the difficult opening in the slum in Indiana, one of the simplest areas of the American Midwest, Gibbs managed to generate hype around and around his first mixtapes, and even received his hospitality and accompaniment in his early years from southern hip hop legends such as Young Geezy, Jossi Jay and more.
Gangsta Gibbs, one of the only rappers still worthy of the nickname, is unequivocally equal to the most important rapper in history, and rightly so. The style, the look, the serving – they all resemble the late King of the Gangsta Rap. Like Tupac Shakur, Gibbs was also the victim of an assassination attempt several years ago, when a man shot him and his entourage as he left Williamsburg for his vehicle. Fortunately, Gibbs left the incident unharmed and only two members of his entourage were lightly injured.
The signing of Freddy Gibbs to Israel is signed by independent production company Zuz Ignacy, who is also responsible for, among other things, the arrival of Peaches, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bombino and Brooke Candy to Israel.
First tickets will go up in price for “Early Birds” and will go up in subsequent rounds until the end of the ticket sale.
