Freddie Gibbs has enlisted Rick Ross for his fiery new track “Ice Cream.” Arriving ahead of his Coachella performance with Madlib, the track finds the collaborators flexing their financial success and flipping birds over a thunderous track from Kenny Beats. Accompanied by a wild and wintry video, “Ice Cream” begins Gibbs’ 2022 takeover.
“Ice Cream” reimagines Raekwon’s iconic song of the same name from 1995’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…. Kenny Beats flips fragments of the sample RZA used and delivers ominous, speaker-blowing trap—the perfect vehicle for Gibbs to serve lines in his unparalleled, rapid-fire flow. Meanwhile, Rick Ross reminds listeners that he stacks money, has a closet full of unworn designer sneakers, and doesn’t hold court with snitches.
