Gary, Indiana might not be widely recognized as a mecca of hip-hop talent, but Freddie Gibbs might just change that with an insanely prolific stream of amazing mixtapes. His latest release is called A Cold Day In Hell, and the first track we can hear is intense, high-powered “Let Em Burn.”
Gibbs’ is a really fantastic rapper who can make even the super-overdone lyrical themes he employs on “Let Em Burn” sound fresh – it’s in his passionate, tough-guy delivery and effortless prowess over Olympics’ airy synth beat. With his smooth flow and deft delivery, Gibbs is totally poised to burn everything down – keep an eye on this guy.
