Freddie Gibbs has collaborated With Schoolboy Q For his new track “Gang Signs”
The Gary, Indiana native channels his Midwest roots for this track by crafting a melody that recalls Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Do or Die. Currently, in the song’s chorus, he also mentions the Chicago trio.
“I need a dope flip every day, I’ve been on some broke shit, n**ga was a po pimp Do or Die,” sings Freddie. “Nga play me on some hoe, may his motherfucking self be killed as well, it’s a suicide… I’m not new to this shit, I’m true to this shit, Bitch, I’m true to this shit, and I wake up and throw a gang sign every morning.”
Gibbs turns the song over to Q after matching the hook with an equally powerful verse.
“At the GRAMMYs still strapped, aye/I’m glowing causing a straight n**ga, I’m happier than yesterday/We’re trying to beat the case of the homie, tears on his daughter’s face/I’m just trying to help with what I’m doing,” raps Schoolboy. “Is it just feelings or rap lines/No white man gone save mine/Belt will not help my waistline/Still gone die for my Groove Line.”
Working on Dying created the single which comes on the heels of Freddie being compelled to take his talents to Twitter. Gibbs’s Instagram story has traditionally been the center of crude, albeit funny, content. Yet Gibbs’s profile was deleted from the site by Facebook after breaking the rules one too many times. Yet, he was not slowed down by this.
