“Industry got you sleep but bitch I’m woke, I know the devil / These n***as be falling off everyday like Ace Hood Rollie bezel / N***as don’t understand / That 360 mean a percentage of every income stream / That record ain’t doin’ no numbers,” Freddie Gibbs raps on “Giannis,” delivering some sharp music business game. “You trip on your management and your legal team / Uhh, I done been dropped before, talked about and wrote off before.”

“My dad always told me, ‘Always be so good that you can’t be denied,’” Gibbs explained to us last month, sharing some insight into how he comes up with verses like the above “Giannis” salvo.
