Chatting with Nadeska Friday (April 5) Freddie shared what’s to come with his new album Bandana and why it was a breeze to team up with Madlib again. “This is like 5 years in the making,” he said. He noted how the album was made while he was falsely arrested for sexual assault overseas. “Made most of it while I was locked up. Made bulk of the album. Didn’t know if I was gonna get out and rap again.”
Pivoting to his lighter topics, the Indiana MC gave context to his hilarious Flat Tummy Tea post on Instagram that raised plenty of eyebrows. Freddie explained how the post was just a reference to his song of the company’s name.

“I see insta girls posting tea all the time,” he said. “When I made the song, the song doesn’t have anything to do with the tea, just line in song. I was just on IG, saw girls doing hashtags, wanted to troll these bitches. I bet flat tummy tea was like wtf.”
But the best moment lies in Freddie breaking out his spelling chops for Nadeska’s Spelling Bee. After a tumble on a few terms, the rapper finishes on top.
“I sold crack, but I ain’t stupid,” he said after scoring points on the board.
