Freddie Gibbs’ New Song ‘Giannis’ Slaps My Face Off
To give you an idea of where we are with Giannis Antetokounmpo as a player and a human in my life, I will stan pretty much anything pop culture that he’s involved with. It could be the worst shit ever, and I’ll still go ‘Well, Giannis got a mention, so, it can’t be that bad.’ Part of me wants to get a pair of Giannis’ first signature shoe, even though, I’m not a shoe collector nor do I need basketball shoes. The latest pop culture mention about Giannis features his song in the title of a new Freddie Gibbs’ song. For those unfamiliar with Gibbs, he’s a talented rapper from Gary, Indiana. This song is truly fantastic.
“Real G’s move in silence like Giannis” is such a dope fucking lyric. That is what you want to hear about your boy, Giannis, versus something out of the ordinary. Gibbs also talks about getting his ‘Greek Freak’ on with a threesome, which does not feature the wholesome nature of Antetokounmpo, but Greek Freak + sex = popular rap lyrics. Cardi B actually had a line about Giannis in one of her last songs and went with a similar trope saying she’s a ‘freak like Greek.’
Back when I actually listened to more music, Gibbs made it into the rotation, and with him partnering again with Madlib, I feel like I should probably spin his new album as well especially if he’s showing Giannis some love.
