Freddie Gibbs isn’t allowing any man to take credit for what he’s built.

A fan of both Jeezy and Freddie Gibbs recently tweeted out, “The greatest thing Jeezy ever did was thug motivation 101. The second greatest thing he ever did was give us @FreddieGibbs.” Though the fan was later bombarded with tweets demanding he delete the tweet, Freddie Gibbs clearly caught wind of the comment and chimed in himself.
“I gave us @FreddieGibbs,” he wrote.
Though it’s no shot at Jeezy, Freddie Gibbs overcame some major obstacles throughout his career — from getting dropped from Interscope to the charge in Austria that nearly put his career on hold indefinitely. Jeezy may have introduced Gibbs to a wider audience but the Bandana MC was already getting looks prior to that. He even appeared on the same XXL Freshmen Cover with Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, J. Cole, Jay Rock, and more in 2010 following the critically acclaimed mixtapes that he put out.
Peep Gibbs’ tweet below.
