Gotty™ has been constantly telling us that the return of gritty, street music hitting the mainstream is upon us. The fact that a video like this for Freddie Gibbs’ “The Ghetto” is getting this much buzz and placement on MTV is a sign that his prediction is coming to fruition.
This video feels a lot like a midwest version of Juvenile’s “Ha” that dropped over a decade ago. It’s honest, street and paints a detailed picture of the artist’s hood in jarring fashion.
The next stop on the Freddie Gibbs experience is Str8 Killa No Filla. You’ve been properly warned.
