Freddie Gibbs is back with another video for another “ESGN” track titled “Lay It Down” (produced by Willi B.)
Directed by Will Gates, the beginning of the video sees a news team discuss the notoriety of Gibbs’ hometown of Gary, Indiana.
The video then proceeds to show all the typical symptoms of a “gangster-rap” video: guns, tattoos, gang signs, bandanna’s, dice games and loads of mean-mugging of the camera.
The visuals for “Lay It Down” caused quite a stir for a few folk on YouTube who disagreed with the content. Freddie Gibbs himself then responded in the comments section:
Freddie Gibbs’ album “ESGN” was released 3 weeks prematurely after Gangsta Gibbs’ impatience:
FUCK JULY 9th #ESGN OUT TODAY FIN
