Video: Freddie Gibbs freestyles on Vocalo

A few weeks ago Gary, Indiana's hip hop phenom Freddie Gibbs stopped by for an interview on Vocalo. We ran over to the studio and got him to do a little freestyle on video for us. Since he's performing at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival and they just finalized their line-up today, it's as good a time as any to show you his stuff. (For the record, we love Pitchfork Fest.) He's been called the breakout star of SXSW 2010, but while on air with Luis there was a slight misunderstanding about whether or not he was allowed to curse. Once he realized that he was off the air, he took advantage of the opportunity to be himself. And boy, does he like to curse. If you don't want to hear cursing, don't watch this. In other words, NFSW.
