Freddie Gibbs is one of rap’s most notorious trolls. That is saying a lot, because the rap scene is notorious for personal attacks, long-running feuds, and underhanded shots at peers. Gibbs is now learning what it is like to have a taste of his own medicine.
Gibbs and his entourage recently had a run-in with Jim Jones and his crew. One group was arriving at Miami’s Prime 112 restaurant as the other left. Elbow bumps and words were exchanged. A physical altercation ultimately erupted.
Reports from the scene noted that Gibbs and his crew got the worst of the fight. Jim Jones has now chosen to rub salt in the wound. He’s naming his new album after the restaurant in an effort to further embarrass Freddie over the incident. He shared the news in a since-deleted tweet.
“Jim Jones & Hitmaka ALBUM ‘Prime 112′
Feats – Jeremih, Ty [Dolla $ign], Steff London, Benny The Butcher, Conway [The Machine], Trav, Pleasure P, Ball Greezy, Tink, & A FEW MORE HAVE CANT TALK ABOUT.”
Jones responded to a fan who pointed out that the title appeared to be a shot at Gibbs. He said he’s friends with Gibbs and there isn’t a single diss track on the album.
Either Jim Jones is a huge fan of the Miami eatery or he’s being insincere. With the incident so close in timing to the tweet, many fans believe it can’t be a coincidence. Time will tell if Freddie Gibbs has a response.
Beef in hip-hop is simply part of the culture. Kanye West and Drake are at the top of the industry and still had one of the most talked-about feuds of all time. Big rap beefs are becoming an essential part of the industry, and it’s a sure-fire way to draw attention to a new album.
