Freddie Gibbs Says Split from Young Jeezy’s CTE Was Not Amicable

In December, Freddie Gibbs announced his departure from Young Jeezy’s CTE label. With little word on what lead to the split, Gibbs revealed in an interview with The Morning Riot that it was anything but amicable.

“I can’t really say it was amicable. I could just say that we agreed to disagree. We definitely disagreed,” Gibbs told The Morning Riot. “The guy moves in a different way that I move, and I just wanted to branch out and do my own thing. I felt like I was wasting time pushing someone else’s brand when I could push my own and do my own thing. Because that’s was what he was concerned with, pushing Jeezy. So I gotta be concerned with pushing Gibbs.”

Gibbs went on to say the business aspect wasn’t being handled correctly at CTE, and he felt he wasn’t being given what he was promised by Jeezy.

“If we doing things in the street and you do me bogus, it might end up with you getting handled. So since we not in the street, you feel like you can play with my money on this Rap side and there ain’t gon’ be no repercussions? Nah man. You not gon’ play with me like that. So to nip all of that in the bud, I just stepped off and did my thing.”

A free agent, Gibbs is currently working on his upcoming EP, The Tonite Show with Freddie Gibbs, slated to releases later this year.
