Gibbs was asked about the potential collaboration on a recent episode of Rap caviar podcast. His response indicated that he and Tyler, The Creator have discussed the idea before.
“We can do it Tyler,” Freddie Gibbs said repeating his name. “I’m going to call his mom and make it happen. She’s going to make him do it.”
The two have surprisingly only collaborated once before: Tyler, The Creator appeared on “Something To Rap About” on AlfredoFreddie Gibbs’ 2020 collaboration with Alchemist.
Despite not releasing much music together, Gibbs holds his peers in very high regard. “I love Tyler man, he’s such a f*cking weirdo,” the “Gang Signs” rapper captioned it Rap caviar clip. “It’s like, how can you not love a guy like that? He’s like a little brother to me, but I also look up to him at the same time. Because I see the things he does and I’m like, ‘What the hell! “It’s amazing, he’s not afraid!”
While he seemed excited at the prospect of collaborating with Tyler, The Creator, Freddie Gibbs recently suggested that his fifth solo album, $oul $old $separately will be his last albumand said his long-awaited collaborative project with Madlib may not happen.
“None. this is my last album. Ask Madlib,” he wrote. Elsewhere, a fan asked what advice he had for newcomers to the music business, to which he replied: “Not as much shit as you can.”
The claim that $oul $old $separately is his latest album coincides with a separate interview Gibbs did with Bootleg Kev earlier in October, where he was asked to comment on Alfred 2 potentially working with Alchemist.
“It’s funny you say that,” Gibbs said when Kev brought up the idea, “but I just told you that every time I make an album I feel like I might not make another one. I have a lot of stuff to make.”
He added: “This whole process of recording an album. I barely got to see my kids much, on tour, man, I’m really ready to just chill, dog. I don’t know if I can’t go anymore through the process of recording an album. I don’t know if I can.”
