Freddie Gibbs explores his full range of thoughts concerning his 2016 sexual assault case for the inaugural episode of VICELAND‘s new TV program The Therapist. Speaking to Dr. Siri Sat Nam Signh, the Pinata rapper is at his most personal and open, speaking at length about his acquittal and the struggles he faced during his experiences in the overseas penal system. As revealed during his Therapist sit-down, Gibbs’ legal troubles in Austria almost pushed him to his breaking point and even made the Gary, Indiana native consider disappearing from the spotlight of the entertainment industry. “They placed me in a cell block with people with swastikas,” Gibbs shares. “I don’t deserve that. I worked hard enough in life to get away from that … I felt like I was in captivity.”
Debuted last night, the entire episode of The Therapist is available for viewing above. In the coming months, VICELAND will air episodes featuring Waka Flocka Flame, D.R.A.M., Wavves’ Nathan Willams, Young M.A., Dej Loaf, Joey Bada$$ and others. Back in March, Freddie Gibbs returned to the mic with the release of his new project You Only Live 2wice. Later this month, Gibbs will once again hit the road for the official You Only Live 2wice tour.
