Freddie Gibbs Vows To Be Better In His “Freddie Gordy” Video

The rapper also announces a lengthy tour.

"Every day I gotta remind myself it's a marathon not a sprint," Freddie Gibbs intones at the beginning of his "Freddie Gordy" clip. "I gotta remind myself be patient. I gotta remind myself be humble... All my life I feel like I've been under something. Underrated. Underpaid. Under-appreciated. But all this shit just gave me a... better understanding. I gotta be better. If not for me, definitely for my child."

After the introduction slows to a halt, the MC moves into "Freddie Gordy," a teeth-rattling track from his Shadow Of A Doubt tape. Blair Norf provided the beat for the somber tune. Fuck police 'cause they killing you and killing me, Gibbs raps. Slanging and banging, my paper stay getting fatter, so do black lives matter when you're about to kill your enemy?

Jonah Schwartz directed the clip for the song. The MC is also heading out on tour; check those dates below.
