On the series premiere of VICELAND’s newest show The Therapist, Gangsta Gibbs sat down with Dr. Siri Sat Sam Singh PhD LMFT to reveal --- for the first time --- his feelings behind the unfortunate incident that put a damper on his career. During the intimate conversation, Dr. Singh draws the real details of what took place between 2015 and 2016.

“In 2015, I did a show in Vienna, Austria. Some females had accompanied some of my associates back to the hotel. What type of encounter or sexual encounter or whatever it was, I didn’t know the details because I wasn’t in the room when anything took place,” Freddie explains.

“I do a show in Paris and the day after I got to my hotel room and people just pop out of nowhere like it was the janitor, the bellboy, the guy on the corner in plain clothes, everyone just turned around and turned into the police,” Gibbs said with a slight chuckle. “The girl had changed her story and said ‘I had a dream that Freddie Gibbs raped me too."

The You Only Live 2wice rapper tells Dr. Singh that he was offered a plea deal of 3 years in prison if he admitted to the false allegations, but he maintained his innocence.

Thankfully, he managed to beat the case after “scientific evidence” proven that he was innocent. Despite that, Gibbs says that the accusations and the experience itself was traumatizing.

“And it wrecked my name. It put a black eye on my name. Something that I would never be involved with,” said Gibbs. “I got a daughter, sister [and a] mother. I would never impose my will on a female. It was traumatizing.”

In fact, the deflated Gibbs revealed one of the more shocking revelations that he was so deeply scarred and angry behind the incident, he was seriously considering quitting Hip-Hop all together.

“A lot of this made me angry at the world. It made me angry at Europeans in general for a minute, my friends, my job, myself. I’m still not sure if I want to do this anymore,” he confessed.

Throughout the revealing and cathartic therapy session, the two had a deep conversation about the huge role that race relations played in the trial, the starling depth of Gibbs’ depression and fear, and his lack of trust for people including many who were in his circle. Dr. Singh tells Gibbs, who also revealed that a part of him as died, that to move forward, he must not only use his anger in a positive fashion, but also make that he allows himself to grieve.

“Anger is divine if you use it correctly,” Dr. Singh tells Gibbs. “It is not to [be used for] revenge and come from negativity, it’s to elevate. Otherwise, this will continue. It is necessary that you grieve.”

He warns Gibbs that he does not grieve and process his emotions and the incident, he may never be able to love again.

The new show spun off from a Noisey episode that featured Dr. Singh’s eye opening session with YG after he was shot three times in 2015.

Since the therapy session, Freddie Gibbs has since released his new album You Only Live 2wice.

Kylie Jenner Teases New Travis Scott Song In Makeup Promo

Kylie Jenner got a little help from her boyfriend Travis Scott in order to promote Kylie Cosmetics’ latest KYBROWS eyebrow pencil. In an ad promoting the upcoming product, Jenner utilizes the “SICKO MODE” musician’s reportedly-unreleased song as background music. In the trippy track, Scott says “she fill my mind up with ideas, I’m the highest in the room, hope I make it out of here…” While we’re not sure if new music is certainly on the way from the Grammy-nominated rapper, Jenner’s KYBROWS drops next week (April 29). Scott’s most recent project, ASTROWORLD, was released in 2018, and he continues to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His February ASTROWORLD tour stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum added him to the list of artists who have sold out the venue more than once in a 12-month span.

YG Shares Fourth Album Title Ahead Of May Release Date

YG is preparing to bless fans with a highly-anticipated full-length album since he announced its release for May 3. Now, in an interview with Billboard, the "FDT" rapper shared the fourth studio project's name, 4REAL 4REAL.

The 29-year-old artist revealed that being in the studio is where he feels unabashedly free, especially given this tough time since his longtime friend Nipsey Hussle was murdered on March 31. "If I'm not doing music, I feel depressed," he said. "I feel like I ain't sh*t. I like to create, and right now, I know where I want to be, and I know how to get there."

The Compton native's previous album, Stay Dangerous, hosts singles like "Big Bank," "Handgun," and other cuts featuring Jay 305 like "Bulletproof," "Slay" with Quavo," and "Power" featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

"From my first album to my second album, and from my second album to my third album, it took me two years to put out each project," he said. "That wasn't my choice. Life was changing: I got shot, I had a daughter. It was crazy—it took a little longer."

YG's upcoming project was originally slated for a mid-April release, but when the shocking news of Hussle's passing hit, the famed rapper placed a halt on the soundscape's debut. During his first weekend set at Coachella, YG said he was able to push through the performance given his consumption of alcohol. "But my ni**a gone," he said, per HipHopDX. "I got to deal with the sh*t. So I decided to push my album back to May 3."

T.I. Bails 23 Nonviolent Offenders Out Of Jail For Easter

T.I. did a remarkable thing this Easter (April 21). In the true spirit of the holiday, T.I. bailed 23 nonviolent offenders out of the DeKalb County Jail in Georgia.

T.I., Love & Hip Hop's Scrapp Deleon, and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga reportedly worked together to bail out seven women and 16 men who were locked up for first-time or nonviolent offenses. The deed was done as part of the church's "Bail Out" program.

"It's almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don't know that you didn't see coming," senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant said good deed. "They're appreciative to be able to press the refresh button."

The philanthropic work doesn't stop after the men and women are released, however. The "Bail Out" program also connects the newly-released citizens with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. A portion of the donations received by the program will be used to establish college funds for former inmates with children.

According to Fox 5, New Birth Missionary launched the "Bail Out" program on Lent (Mar. 6). They pledged to raise $40,000 in order to bail inmates out of jail just in time for Easter Sunday. As soon as T.I. got involved, donations reportedly skyrocketed to $120,000.

We should take note of their courageous efforts.
