This week, the rapper stopped by Power 106 for another round of off-the-cuff lyricism.

Every bit as cold as his dad, Freddie Jr. barely even blinked as his father delivered a casebook (and seemingly breathless,) blackout performance.

Earlier this month, Gibbs contentiously declared “[MF] DOOM can’t rap as good as me,” which sent the internets into hysterics. But it’s a claim that’s getting more difficult to argue by the day.
