Freddie Gibbs has been acknowledged for his technically proficient and stylistically diverse rapping ability. He appears to have a knack for basketball as well. Freddie was recently seen showing off his ball-handling skills.
TMZ reports, Freddie Gibbs is showing off his side hustle skills. He made it obvious while chilling courtside for a Brooklyn Nets preseason game that he’s ready to check in at any time. When a loose ball bounced out of bounds and into his lap, the “Too Much” rapper demonstrated his quick reflexes.
Freddie showed his ball-handling abilities to an unsuspecting cameraman. However, he was probably wearing too much jewelry. Just ask Kurtis Blow, rappers have always desired to play on the NBA hardwood, and Gibbs is no exception, telling his manager Lambo that he needed to show off his skills at the time.
Gibbs also made time to talk with New York Nets All-Star player Kevin Durant. He appears on Gibbs’ new album ‘$$$,’ and the two had a great exchange on the sidelines en route to BK getting smacked by the Heat 109-80. Kevin isn’t the only celebrity with whom Gibbs has reconnected through his latest project.
In a new interview, the Grammy nominee also revealed how he reunited with former label boss Jeezy on the song “Rabbit Vision.” Gibbs told Bootleg Kev that he ran into Jeezy at the airport and that they hugged after falling out nearly a decade ago over artistic disagreements. Gibbs admits dragging the beef too far and chalks it up to experience.
Jeezy is working on a new project with DJ Drama, so maybe the two can reconcile on wax and have a good time. Let’s see whether Freddie can show off his dribble game without his jewels the next time. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
