Freddie Gibbs Signing W/ Young Jeezy

XXLMag.com has learned that 2010 XXL Freshman, Freddie Gibbs, is on the verge of signing to Young Jeezy’s CTE Record label.

Rumors broke out months ago that Gibbs was in talks with the imprint, but according to sources close to the deal, the agreement is done. All that is left is the paperwork.

Reps for the Gary, Indiana native have yet to return phone calls for comment as of press time.

Gibbs is currently on tour with 2011 Freshman Big K.R.I.T. and Smoke Dza. The threesome will hit The Mohawk in Austin Texas tonight. —Jesse Gissen

    Idno about ^^^Best rapper in the game^^^, but i was just thinking of what label he’d be best suited for.

    ‘Duck Down Records” woulda been the best fit

    but CTE might be good for homey.
    best not slow the release of TM3, tho!!

  • Nunya

    lmao, not too sure about the best in the game…funny; everytime news breaks about a rapper somebody posts ‘the best at it’ or something similar. Anyway…

    Thanks XXL for the actual good Hip Hop news. Bout fuckin’ time. (Fuck what Kimbella says.)

  • foges

    hes definitely the best in the game, recognize

  • Tru Talk

    I like the fit, I only have doubts because CTE is a southern based label….. In the end I was hoping Gibbs was going to sign with G-Unit or CTE becasue I felt his content fit best with those two camps and in the end its CTE so im down with that

    Finally Freddie Gibbs is signed. Labels have been sleepin on him for some time now. Signing to CTE is definetly not what I expected. I was thinking he would hook up with Asylum or possibly Shady.

    XXL needs to slow down with all this. Gibbs has not signed with CTE and does not plan to yet. All these rumors…but Gibbs IS the best in the game. KRIT is a close 2nd.
