Freddie Gibbs Made A Song With A Metal Band

“Tied To The Whipping Post” will be on KING 810’s upcoming DJ Drama mixtape, Midwest Monsters 2.

June 15, 2015

Here’s a crazy one: Gary, Indiana legend Freddie Gibbs has joined notoriously gnarly Flint, Michigan metal band King 810 on a new song, “Tied To The Whipping Post.” It will appear on the band’s upcoming, DJ Drama-hosted mixtape, Midwest Monsters 2. (If you're curious: the first installment of that series, from 2012, is here.)


"I'm a versatile artist and I love to challenge myself artistically,” Gibbs told The FADER in an email about the collaboration. “Making a song with a metal band from Flint is an example of that versatility. You can't put me in a box.”
