If you'll recall, Freddie Gibbs split with Jeezy and his CTE imprint in late 2012 after being signed with the label for over a year. While Gibbs initially described it is a mutual breakup, the Gary, Indiana rapper later had a lot to say about his time with Jeezy, and none of it was positive. In a June 2013 interview with MTV, Gibbs called Jeezy a "fraud" and explained why he wanted out of CTE. "I started seein' the fake and the empty promises and all of that stuff and I just didn't wanna be around that no more."
Evidently those words have now made it onto wax as Freddie Gibbs has a diss record for Jeezy chambered on his upcoming collaborative album with Madlib, Piñata. The song is called "Real," which Gibbs debuted last week during his performance at the Metro in Chicago. He raps lines like, "You wanna be Jay Z, nigga you just a fucking puppet” and “Ross had you scared to drop a diss record” to the cheering of the crowd, who seemed to be of aware of the individual Gibbs was referencing.
Complex contributor Craig Jenkins has heard "Real" in full, and shared his own thoughts on the record, which you can view below. Freddie Gibbs and Madlib's Piñata comes out March 18. We'll find out soon enough just how vicious this diss track really is.
