Freddie Gibbs says there is a lot of fakeness occurring in the Hip Hop industry. Gibbs took issue with rappers expressing allegiance to street gangs they know nothing about.
The “Shame” rapper, who happens to be a Vice Lord, slammed Jim Jones for throwing of the street gang’s gang sign
“It’s a lot of things and the streets let slide. All the fake gang banging… Jim Jones I meant you too with all that fake gang banging… because I’m Vice Lord…Jim Jones throwing up the VL, the Vampire s---, I ain’t with that s--- man,” Gibbs said.
Gibbs says he doesn’t hold no ill will towards Maybach rapper Rick Ross, but commented on the “Diced Pineapples” rapper’s use of the Gangster Disciple’s six point star.
“Rick Ross putting six point stars on his CD,” Gibbs said. “It is what it is. I ain’t GD, I can’t speak. Anything coming through my range, I gotta speak on it. I think a lot of stuff in the rap game been sliding.”

Rick Ross didn’t make the best decision in attempting to align himself with the GDs as he was target of numerous death threats from the violent street gang.
In an interview on WEDR-FM 99 JAMZ, Rick Ross told host Felisha Monet he isn’t scared of threats he is receiving from the GDs.
“…Anybody that understand that anything about GDs… it’s all about Growth and Development. Anybody that knew anything about the old man Mr. Hoover… that’s why I put him in my song because I respected his scriptures… philosophies,” Ross said. “It’s all about support. It’s all about coming up. It’s just not about somebody… who got a personal vendetta and that’s something we’re going to address. Other than that, that’s not the case.”
“I was just in Chicago a week and a half ago,” he said. “That’s the birthplace of the GDs. And if I can go to Chicago to handle my business like I did, I have no problem going to North Carolina or South Carolina.”
RickRoss told Monet he is “certified worldwide” and can put a “thousand gangster in any city.”
But Ross says that’s not what he’s here for.
Rick Ross said he isn’t afraid to step in any city.
“If I go to Chicago, I’d go anywhere, so don’t get it twisted,” he said. “When you pull up the footage of me walking out in Chicago on the stage with the chinchilla dragging on the floor, you let me know if that’s the swagger of someone that’s in fear of their life!”
No word on whose to blame for the attempted hit.

Freddie Gibbs also briefly touched on his departure from CTE. The split between the “Shame” rapper and Young Jeezy left some sore wounds and was not amicable by any means.
The Gary, IN native recently sat down with MTV’s Rob Markman to detail his experience under Jeezy’s imprint.
“I believed in what CTE was and what Jeezy was doing. I messed with it. That was the music I was vibing to and I wanted to add to it,” the 31-year-old rapper explained. “I started seeing the fake and the empty promises. I just didn’t want to be around that no more. It’s a whole lot. It’s a book worth of stuff I can go in to in them two years that I saw. Things that’ll make you look at your favorite rapper in a different way.”
Gibbs has been a target of death threats ever since a telling XXL Magazine interview where he disparaged the “Thug Motivation” rapper.
“It’s tough meetin’ your heroes sometimes and kickin’ with them because when they take that cape off, boy o’ boy under that cape, sometimes it’s some scary lil’ boy hidin’ under that cape,” he continued. “You don’t know that until you hang around a guy and you see the way he treat his homies and see how he move.”
