The GRAMMY-nominated rapper is heading to Vicar Street in Spring next year with support from Lord Apex.
Freddie Gibbs, one of hip hop’s most recognisable voices is landing in the capital in April next year. Having cut his teeth as an independent artist for a number of years dropping a slew of mixtapes and later a classic in Piñata, before receiving a GRAMMY nomination for his collaborative album Alfredo with The Alchemist, Gibbs is fast cementing his place as an underground hip hop icon.
Having collaborated with artists ranging from Pusha T, Killer Mike, Anderson. Paak, and Yasiin Bey to Tyler, The Creator, Gucci Mane, A$AP Ferg, Jay Rock, and Young Thug he’s been able to continue his rise to the upper echelon of the genre on his own terms.
With restrictions easing and shows on the cards again, the Indiana rapper has revealed details of his biggest Irish show to date. Freddie Gibbs will perform at Vicar Street on April 4 2022, with support coming from none other than Elevation/Meditation rapper Lord Apex, who also recently made his Irish debut.
