The Majestic Theatre was alive last night as Gangsta Gibbs threw down in classic style. Coming out decked out in all black, sporting a studded-gold ESGN Chain and a black balaclava, Freddie Gibbs wasted no time and started off with his track “BFK” from the Baby Faced Killa album. Frequently voicing his distrust of the police, Gibbs rapped classics like “F*cking Up the Count, Still Livin”. Gibbs also took time to detail his release from prison and dedicated efforts behind his most recent album You Only Live 2wice. He played the favorites off the album including Amnesia, and Crushed Glass, both of which were welcomed with energy by the crowd. Taking a moment to address the crowd, Gibbs told everyone to be grateful for the life they have because it might be taken from you before you know it. Taking breaks to smoke the herbal essence as well as freestyle a capella , the crowd was hyped and energized to the thick 808 tracks and flowy vocals. Often a mosh pit would precipitate near the stage, never getting too out of control but just enough. My personal favorite was a gentlemen who was very drunk, repeatedly putting on and off his shirt , vibing on his own towards the back of the venue, and thoroughly enjoying himself. It’s safe to say that Madison showed Freddie Gibbs some love last night and that this will not be the last time Freddie comes through town to bring his classic style to a hyped crowd.
