Freddie Gibbs Doesn't Have a New Album "Coming Soon," He Was Joking

Less than five weeks after releasing 'You Only Live 2wice,' Gangsta Gibbs jokingly teases another project.

It's only been five weeks since Freddie Gibbs released You Only Live 2wice, his first project since 2015's Shadow of a Doubt, but the Gary, Indiana native refuses to rest on his laurels.

In the caption of a photo with his daughter posted to Instagram on Sunday evening (May 7), Gibbs announced: "new album coming soon."

It's unclear if the "new album" that is "coming soon" is Bandana, the tentatively-titled sequel to Piñata, Gibbs' 2014 album with producer Madlib, but in an interview with Complex shortly after the release of You Only Live 2wice, the rapper did tease the impending release, saying, “Y’all pretty much know that I’m about to drop the bomb with this Madlib shit.”
