Grammy-nominated rapper, Freddie Gibbs has released the music video for “Rabbit Vision” today. Taken from his unanimously acclaimed 2022 album, $oul $old $eparately via ESGN/Warner Records, the song is now accompanied by a video directed by Harley Astorga, Ben “Lambo” Lambert, & Freddie Gibbs. Watch it now below.
The gritty clip collates real-life footage of Gibbs shot over the past few years. It follows him as he records in a hotel room, rapping intently, picking up a guitar, and exhaling smoke. It alternates moments in the club with vignettes of him dunking on the court, narrowly missing a putt at the 18th hole, and celebrating his sustained success surrounded by friends. It might just be his most intimate visual yet, pairing perfectly with the introspective track. The soulful guitar-laced sample seamlessly matches pensive bars as he confesses, “I’m taking chances with my life. I’d rather bleed than be broke, and that’s a fucked up mentality, but it stayed with me.” He goes on to repeat, “A lot of shit, it broke my heart, but it fixed my vision.”
Next up, Gibbs will take the stage at NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on January 23 for a very special performance of “Feel No Pain.” Uniting different eras and styles, he will be joined by collaborator Anderson .Paak as well as the show’s legendary “house band” The Roots. Be sure to tune in!
