Freddie Gibbs heads into Easter weekend with his new track “Big Boss Rabbit.”
The Grammy-nominated rapper confirmed the release on social media this week, posting a couple of animated clips inspired by old-school video games. The latest teaser, which featured animation by Mykola Dosenko, included a reference to Gibb’s 2013 debut album ESGN (Evil Seeds Grow Naturally), leading some to believe “Big Boss Rabbit” will appear on the album’s rumored sequel.
You can stream “Big Boss Rabbit,” produced by Swaggyono, now on all major platforms, including Apple Music and Spotify. The video is also available to watch up top.
Gibbs is now gearing up to make his feature film debut in Down with the King, in which he will play the lead character of Mercury Maxwell. The film’s writer/director, Diego Ongaro, recently spoke to Complex about the project, touching on his overall goal for the film and his experience working with Gibbs.
“Many films that feature the hip-hop community tell underdog ‘success stories,’ whereas Down with the King does the contrary,” Ongaro said. “Mercury is at the top of the hip-hop world but desperately seeks a simpler life … Freddie Gibbs and I worked intimately together to craft Mercury’s character and backstory; some of it pulled from Freddie’s experiences and values, much of it invented. It was an absolute thrill working with someone as sharp and multi-talented as Freddie in this collaborative way.”
