Today, Indiana’s first Grammy nominated rapper and budding actor Freddie Gibbs releases “Ice Cream.” Arriving ahead of his Coachella performance with Madlib, Gibbs teams up with Rick Ross for fiery rap anthem that finds the collaborators flexing their financial success and flipping birds over a thunderous track from Kenny Beats. Accompanied by a wild and wintry video, “Ice Cream” begins Gibbs’ 2022 takeover. Listen and watch video below!
“Ice Cream” reimagines Raekwon’s iconic song of the same name from 1995’s Only Built $ Cuban Linx….Kenny Beats flips fragments of the sample RZA used and delivers ominous, speaker blowing trap-the perfect vehicle for Gibbs to serve lines in his unparalleled, rapid-fire flow: “Dope feen got a pipe dream / Serve my neighbors 34 flavors / I got ice cream.” Meanwhile, Rick Ross reminds listeners that he stacks money, has a closet full of unworn sneakers, and doesn’t hold court with snitches. In the captivating video, Gibbs speeds an ice cream truck while surrounded by beautiful, twerking woman. He then links with Ross over an icy tundra and rap as snow falls.
