New Music: Freddie Gibbs – ‘Real’ (Jeezy Diss)

Young Jeezy and Freddie Gibbs

Jeezy and Rick Ross may have patched things up, but another rapper has beef with the Snowman. Freddie Gibbs has issued a diss track to his former CTE boss.

Since their split in 2012, the Gary, Indiana rapper has accused Jeezy of not holding up his end of the deal. On the Madlib-produced “Real,” which he debuted live in Chicago on Monday, Gibbs goes on the record.

“You wanna be Jay Z, ni**a, you just a fuckin’ puppet,” he raps on the three-and-a-half-minute track.

“Now you say you’re the realest ni**a in it / But Ross said you’re scared to drop a diss record / No nuts, got the whole team lookin’ weak / Guess that’s why they ran up on you at the BETs.”

The scathing song will appear on Gibbs and Madlib’s joint album Piñata, dropping Tuesday.

Rick Ross and Jeezy Join Forces in ‘War Ready’ Video

Rick Ross and Jeezy

Rick Ross and Jeezy put their beef aside and went in front of the cameras to shoot a video for their collaboration “War Ready” during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Gun shots rang out as the hip-hop titans turned a warehouse into a violent battlefield in the TAJ-directed clip.

“History. Bet that,” tweeted TAJ.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Rozay spoke about squashing their beef. “We had past differences and we put that to the side being true bosses to do something big for the culture, which is bigger than both of us,” he said.

They made headlines for their scuffle at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, but it’s all in the past. “We never really personally had an issue,” he explained. “Real bosses get over that and that’s what we did, and I’m happy we was able to do that and set the examples for some of the younger bosses that’s coming up.”

The Mike WiLL Made It-produced single will appear on Ross’ upcoming album Mastermind, which also features Kanye West, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Meek Mill, and Scarface.

Watch them make peace on set of “War Ready.”

Video: August Alsina f/ Jeezy – ‘Make It Home’

August Alsina

August Alsina shares his story of struggle, hustle, and survival in the compelling video for “Make It Home,” the first single off his upcoming debut Testimony. The New Orleans crooner connects with his Def Jam labelmate Jeezy in the Payne Lindsey-directed clip, which plays out in reverse.

The album’s April 15 release date coincides with the birthday of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who inspired August to pursue music. Melvin was tragically gunned down in New Orleans in 2010.

“As an artist, I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people,” said August. “Nothing is held back on Testimony. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”

You can catch August opening for 2 Chainz on his “2 G.O.O.D. to Be T.R.U. Tour,” which wraps March 24 in Washington, D.C.
