For his first headlining gig in rap’s capital, Gangsta Gibbs didn’t play it safe. The vast majority of those in attendance at the Highline Ballroom two weeks ago were never going to be rapping along with Gibbs bar for bar with him still being new and all, so he took the opportunity to debut some new music. The upcoming Str8 Killa, No Filla’s “Crushin’ Feelin’s” made the setlist, as well as previously unheard material that Freddie performed with aplomb. However, when he did go into his midwest… material, he garnered some sing-alongs, most notably for “Murda On My Mind” and “Womb 2 The Tomb,” during which partner-in-rhyme Pill made a pitch-perfect cameo.
