Freddie Gibbs – “Rock Bottom” Video

<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Str8-Killa-Freddie-Gibbs/dp/B003S897UU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302289657&sr=1-1"> Even with so many top-notch choices to choose from, "Rock Bottom" still remains my personal favorite from the Str8 Killa saga. It wasn't so much the genuine expression of his methodical Catch-22 where coping with depression through substance abuse that won me over. It was more so that <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/freddie-gibbs">Gangsta Gibbs</a> wickedly slayed a track that perfectly fit his gravely understated baritone as it was slowed down to the proper BPM to allow his flow to really highlight his full potential.

Over a light, bouncy piano, Mikkey drops a few precise bars detailing why he's the best out of the Windy City, much of which I agree with.
