Freddie Gibbs is the Bulls Blogger You Need to Be Reading
Gary, Ind. rapper Freddie Gibbs was one of music's breakout stars a year ago. Perhaps you've copped his excellent "Str8 Killa" ep or seen video of his borderline epic blunt smoking exhibition with Best Coast. But didja know that Gansta' Gibbs also has a co-sign from the Internet sports landscape? Hip-hop blogger Bill Simmons once hailed him as the "savior of gangster rap", and ESPN Chicago's Jon Greenberg quoted him in a recent column.
Gibbs is also a devoted Chicago sports fan who can be seen tweeting during Bears and Bulls games. His bits of wisdom are often indispensable, like when he tweeted "Sit down vinny del negro u got slapped by John Paxson" during the most recent Bulls-Clippers contest. He's sort of the best.
Rap Radar has taken note of Gibbs' penchant for sports and decided to give him a column. This week, he wrote about, what else, the Bulls' big win over the Heat. His post was better than mine.
I miss those days too, man. I miss those days, too.
