While we don't have any definitive statistics in front of us, it would seem rappers have been relying more and more on features these days.
Freddie Gibbs is not feeling the trend.
I don’t even wanna rap wit no nigga I can’t relate to. Rap full of bullshit collabs. It’s all for the bag tho.— Big 🐰 (@FreddieGibbs) September 23, 2021
"I don’t even wanna rap wit no n*gga I can’t relate to. Rap full of bullsh*t collabs. It’s all for the bag tho," he typed on Twitter.
While Gibbs has four collab albums under his belt -- all with producers Madlib and The Alchemist -- he does seem to stay away from feature-heavy singles.
Who do you think Gangsta Gibbs is calling out?
