Gary, Indiana, native Freddie Gibbs has been happy to call Los Angeles his home for years, but until pretty recently, his main residence was up in an Austrian prison, after being accused of sexual assault in Vienna last summer. A recent XXL story detailed the harrowing ordeal that left one of the most distinctive and certified voices in the game drained by a foreign justice system that nakedly assumed his guilt with next to no evidence. Beset by a whole other level of anti-Black-slash-anti-Black-American racism, he gave his all just to keep his head above water through the trial, in which he was finally acquitted. A new LP, You Only Live 2wice, plus another promised album-length collaboration with Madlib called Bandana, are on their way, and Gangsta Gibbs doubtless got some shit to get off his chest. So goddamn welcome the man home. LARRY MIZELL JR.
