The social media cops can’t hold Freddie Gibbs down. The Midwest rapper’s infamously raunchy Instagram account was temporarily shut down a few months ago, but the Grammy nominee recently revealed he’d been maintaining a secret IG account all along.
Freddie Gibbs Reveals He Has A Secret Instagram Account
Back in December 2020, Freddie Gibbs was kicked off Instagram after one too many NSFW posts. The ban didn’t keep the rapper/actor — who is set to make his movie debut soon — away from the ‘Gram, though. He’s back with his @freddiegibbsofficial account, and in a new GQ feature, FG admitted his undercover IG activity.
“N*ggas become irrelevant because they stop learning and being sponges to the game. I eat, sleep, and breathe this sh*t, every day. I’m looking at what everybody’s doing. I’m getting on fake Instagram pages leaving comments like, ‘That sh*t is wack.’ I’m doing all kinds of bullsh*t, taunting people.”
Freddie Gibbs Has Some New Music Coming
This week, the “Something To Rap About” star took to Twitter to ask followers if they wanted some new heat. He only previewed album art and the beat for his song, which samples legendary rapper Nas‘ “You’re da Man”.

Freddie Gibbs’ Movie Role Is A Familiar One For Him
Grammy-nominated rapper’s profile keeps getting bigger. After his album Alfredo earned critical acclaim and Best Rap Album consideration, the Indiana native is set to make his Hollywood movie debut this year.
Freddie Gibbs recently finished filming Down with the King, in which he portrays the main character. He plays a rapper named Money Merc who is looking to get out of the music industry and live a simpler life as a farmer.
The news of Gibbs’ acting debut, Complex can reveal, comes just as principal photography on the film has wrapped. The Alfredo rapper portrays Mercury Maxwell, a rapper who goes by the name Money Merc and is looking to leave hip-hop. As he’s sent by his manager to a house in the Berkshires to record his next album, Maxwell instead forms a bond with his farming neighbor and announces his retirement. After his focus shifts from rapping to farming, Maxwell’s manager is determined to get him back into the music scene. (Complex)
Filmmaker Give Freddie Gibbs His Props
Down with the King writer/director Diego Ongaro praised Gibbs, who helped develop the Money Merc character from his own experience as an artist.
“If you know Freddie Gibbs as a rapper, get ready to see his name on the big screen a lot more in the future. His acting talent is undeniable.”
