Freddie Gibbs Returns with Introspective New Single "Crushed Glass," Announces 'You Only Live 2wice' Project
Let us all rejoice, the return of Freddie Gibbs is nigh. Sparing all of the biblical talk (and imagery, above,) the Gary, IN rapper is, in fact, back with a new video today, sharing a desert-clad clip for the lead-off single "Crushed Glass." He's also announced a forthcoming eight-track project, You Only Live 2wice will be released on March 21st.
The tape's announcement follows the rapper's acquittal in a sexual assault case in fall of 2016. Recently he's been featured on tracks with Saga and Thelonious Martin, as well as The Avalanches. Gibbs has also shared the singles "All Day" and "Overtime," neither of which are included on the You Only Live 2wice track list (below.) Jump back to hear those. Jury's still out on when/if we'll get a follow-up to his classic, Pinata, with Madlib, but if there were ever a year, 2017 appears to be it. Jump back to watch the producer discuss the record (tentatively-titled Bandana) in a Red Bull Music Academy lecture.
Watch the video for the new single "Crushed Glass" below. Pre-order You Only Live 2wice on iTunes today and head over to EMPIRE pick up a copy on vinyl.
