Freddie Gibbs is no longer an independent artist.  Today, Gibbs and Warner Records announced the 38-year-old has signed a major label deal.

“Freddie’s lyricism is unmatched," Warner Records SVP of A&R, Norva Denton.  "He operates at an unparalleled prolific pace by consistently dropping quality projects with intensity and intention. He has indisputably become one of the most talked-about and respected artists of his generation. Our team, Aaron Bay-Schuck, and I have the utmost respect for Freddie and his artistry. We’re honored to partner with him for this next chapter and provide a platform for the incredible music to come.”

Gibbs is ready to go:

“I’m really looking forward to partnering with Warner and working with Aaron," the Gary, Indiana spitter said. "He’s a young progressive label head I can openly share ideas with. It was love and respect from the first meeting and always felt right. We’re working together to take everything to another level for my day one fans as well as the people just now discovering me.”

This isn't Gibbs's first major-label foray. He was signed to Interscope in 2006.  However, that partnership didn't last long and never produced an album.

Alfredo, Gibbs's joint album with The Alchemist, had a 30K first week earlier this month, the best opening of Gibbs's career.  Do you think Warner can take him next level?
