One of Rap's most respected free agents has finally landed. Gary, Indiana's Freddie Gibbs has officially inked a deal with Young Jeezy's CTE (Corporate Thugz Entertainment) imprint, cementing the widely circulating rumor of a pending collaboration.
Gibbs burst onto the national scene following his two critically acclaimed mixtapes, The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs and MidwestGangstaBoxframeCadillacMuzik in 2009 earning a high profile appearance in The New Yorker, and the cover of XXL Magazine as part of it's Freshmen '10 cover. After the success of his 2010 EP, Str8 Killa and his nationally televised appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly, Young Jeezy signed Gibbs to his Atlanta-based record label.
CTE Records is distributed by Island/Def Jam and released Jeezy's platinum selling debut album, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 among others. Freddie Gibbs' is currently on tour with Big K.R.I.T. and his next mixtape, A Cold Day In Hell is scheduled for release by CTE later this Summer.
