Freddie Gibbs Forms ESGN Imprint

Freddie Gibbs is taking his ESGN to a whole new level. In a partnership with EMPIRE Distrubtion, Gibbs is launching his own independent label. To hear him tell it.

“ESGN is me. If you’re in it, you know what it’s all about. You might know ESGN from my blog on RapRadar, but it’s basically the full embodiment of what I represent: music, film, fashion and more. I decided to partner up with EMPIRE Distribution because I like the way they rock. They make things simple and I like keeping things simple. They allow me to do what I gotta do and help me expand my reach through their various relationships.”

His Baby Face Killa mixtape drops September 25 and he plans to release a retail version with additional tracks afterwards.

    Creating your own record label when you’ve never released an album is not a good look

    BFK needs to be mind blowing

  • Rozay

    God bless the child that’s got his own, flat out.

    Glad to see an artist controlling the business side of his music. We need more entrepreneurs. Keep going.

    Reblogged this on The Music Business Revisionist and commented:
    Didn’t see this one coming, but I guess we should have. So many rappers are forming labels these days. If he’s smart, Gibbs will do his best to create a sustainable brand that goes far beyond entertainment.

    damn you, this is sorta embarassing for gibbs. I love dude to death, he’s one of the realest out, but damn your own label now? that seems hella weird since he is supposedly signed to CTE… we’ll see what happens but im afraid that its too late to resurrect his career…

  • Anon DCPL

    BFK!

    I don’t give a shit, I just want that good music delivered.

    A bunch of debbie downers on this bitch.

  • Black Shady

  • Goldenboy

    CTE WORLD NIGGAA

  • TRUTH

  • Diondon

    See the difference between Sleezy and Ross? Ross putting niggas out left and right while Gibbs getting frustrated and saying fuk it, I’ll put myself out. Bossssssssss

  • mr.kee

    Its a good look he signed to CTE why wouldnt jeezy allow him to go out and build his brand like he did

  • will

    Might be reading too much into this, but this looks like Gibbs trying to separate himself from Jeezy, and the leaks from BFK defend that, cause Bout it Bout it and The Hard sound NOTHING like what the majority of Cold Day in Hell sounded like. You really think Gibbs wants BFK to just sound like Pull Up? Gibbs is best over Madlib type shit but Jeezy’s style don’t mesh wit Madlib. Honestly, Gibbs should have just signed with Stones Throw. Hope this shit works for him, cause really, Gibbs career isn’t in the best spot right now, especially since other guys like Krit and Kendrick got their albums already out (well Kendrick is like a month away but you get it)

  • Lowdown

    Google ‘Rockafella Records’ & then slap yourself in the face for saying dumb shit
