Life knocked rapper Freddie Gibbs down in 2016. However, the Gary, Indiana rep is moving forward with more caution this year. Today (March 31), Gibbs released his brand new album, You Only Live 2wice, the first project since being released from an Austrian jail to rejoin his friends and family.

The self-proclaimed Baby Scarfac rode solo on the featureless album, but tapped Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD, Speakerbomb, Blair Norf and many others for produciton.
