Freddie Gibbs hit Twitter with some cryptic tweets on Friday (December 7), declaring himself a free agent. So, is he no longer signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE label? Did something happen?
The Indianna rapper called in Power 105’s The Breakfast Club to clear the air, and confirmed that he’s decided to leave the label that Jeezy built.
“It was a number of things. At the end of the day it was a good decision for myself and my family,” Freddie said. “It wasn’t nothing against him or none of that. It’s just a move that I had to make personally and business wise.
“We just move in different ways. It’s just best that he move in his way, best that I move in my way,” he continued.
Although he’s leaving, he says there’s no animosity, and will be no diss records toward Young Jeezy.
Jeezy, who has inked a new deal with Atlantic for CTE, echoed Gibb’s feelings, saying he just needed to push reset on his businesses. “Freddie is a talented artist and I decided that it’s time to press reset on my career and business ventures. I have no doubt that Freddie will go on to be everything I believe he can be, and I wish him the best in his career.”
