    (edit: for those who don't know, Andrew Barber founded the influential Chicago rap blog Fake Shore Drive and manages Valee.)

    Dunno if we have a general thread for Gibbs' next album but:

    I’ve been saying he’s obv due to drop very soon. He’s on an all time run right now so I expect it to be great. 10/10? I hope, but I’m not holding my breath for another Alfredo. And yea I made a general/appreciation Gibbs thread a few months back, haven’t posted in it in awhile tho. Def deserves a thread for when he drops this

    He’s great, even shines at times, but overrated on this forum for sure.

    r-----ed album title. Def won’t be a classic. Only good song he’s ever had is Giannis.

    Greedo and Gibbs have made two 10/10s so far. I wonder how many songs they have banked...I'd be shocked if there weren't any more just because they're both so prolific. I mean Greedo 5+ songs with Lil Pump in one session on his very last night free, he must have at least a couple more with gibbs. When Greedo gets out I need a full tape from them. Don't know why but they just compliment each other so well. I think cuz they can both switch off from straight traditional gangsta rap to more contemporary melodic stuff at the drop of a dime.

    Both top 10 rappers of the past decade imo.

    Yeah I’ll be honest, I hadn’t really heard or listened to him until Death Row came about. Disco s--- is an obv 10/10. They really do compliment each other so well. Similar to Freddie on a Madlib beat; it just works. Speaking of which, considering this is supposed to have a handful of producers, I gotta imagine there’s a madlib beat or two on this thing.

    Lemme know if you want any recs for Greedo—he's kinda daunting cuz a lot of his mixtapes are so long. But I can recommend some shorter ones or make a playlist if you're interested!

    Still Summer in the Projects and Netflix & Deal are probably the most easily accessible starting points even tho they're not his best (still good to great though!). They're produced by DJ Mustard and Kenny Beats respectively if you like either of them.

    God Level and Money Changes Everything are his best imo along with First Night Out. GL and MCE are both long but FNO is easily digestible. But the version on streaming is missing the first track cuz of sample stuff I believe and it's an essential:

    The Purple Summer tapes I don't really ever listen to straight through for obvious reasons. They're long for the same reason Gucci/Lil B/etc dropped so many tapes in such a short period—they're made for experimentation and to leave a lot of room to have fun/play around, try new things, and see what works and what doesn't. Def worth going through them though if you like what you hear from other stuff. 2017/Purple Summer 3 is really when he starts to figure out what works for him imo.
