This is the first of many Mixtape of the Week posts. Every Thursday I’ll post up a new mixtape that I’ve been listening to. Today, it’s Freddie Gibbs’s midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik. Gangsta Gibbs hails from Gary, Indiana, a rough city about 30 miles south of Chicago. When you hear his music you hear influences from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, The Dayton Family, UGK, Twista, and ABN. The thing that impresses me the most about his music is the wordplay, sometimes you just have to rewind it to comprehend what you just heard.

Standout tracks: Midwest Malcolm (Inhale), Womb 2 The Tomb, How I Feel, Iodine Poison, Boxframe Cadillac
