Freddie Gibbs returns with a new music video for his standout Alfredo collaboration with Rick Ross and The Alchemist, “Scottie Beam”. The visual is reminiscent of the opening scenes of Queen & Slim — Gibbs gets pulled over by law enforcement and has to protect himself or risk dying at the hands of the police. In the opening verse Freddie raps, “Just let me go ’cause my license, insurance proper, sir/ I’d hate to be on the run for smokin’ an officer/ We were bustin’ at police before Queen & Slim…”

Rick Ross watches the news with reporting on the global Black Lives Matter protests surrounding the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor before seeing Fred’s face on a ‘Wanted’ poster. He proceeds to help get Gibbs out of dodge through the numerous Floridian waterways. In HYPEBEAST’s “Freddie Gibbs’ Name Holds Weight” feature, manager Ben “Lambo” Lambert detailed how “Scottie Beam” came together:

We were getting on a plane to New York a couple months ago before the pandemic. Freddie had just gotten [the “Scottie Beam”] beat from Al. He laid it down with Rich and was like, “Yo, I think I’m going to send the record to Rick Ross, which songs should I send him?” It was between “Scottie Beam” or the song that became “Something to Rap About.” Something more luxurious and smooth. Freddie sent both. We got off the flight some five hours later and Ross had sent the record back already. When we heard that “M-M-M-Maybach Music” drop we were just going off. We knew it was a classic verse immediately. When he said, “I had a vision back when I was fishin’ for a bass…” Come on. That was “Devil In A New Dress” level.

Alchemist and Gibbs first premiered their collaboration with the “1985” music video. Watch the full video above and revisit Alfredo below. Earlier this week, Freddie also teamed up with Problem and Snoop Dogg for the “Don’t Be Mad At Me” Remix.
