    Lunaface & Free Willed Present: Freddie Gibbs In 2009 rapper Freddie Gibbs set out to be the Midwest's unofficial street poet, releasing a series of mixtapes that were as complex as they were thuggish. Influenced by the likes of 2Pac, Biggie, UGK, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Gibbs filled his lyrics with honest and compelling stories of his hometown's demise, a steady decline to which he helped contribute while a drug dealer. He dealt out of a Gary, Indiana recording studio, absorbing a steady stream of uninspired rhymes while pushing product. Figuring he could do better, Gibbs began writing his own lyrics and cut some demos that would eventually land in the hands of Interscope. When the label signed Gibbs in 2006, he moved to Los Angeles and recorded a debut album, but a year later the management of Interscope changed hands and the rapper was dropped. He returned to Gary, and then moved to Atlanta until producer Josh the Goon convinced Gibbs to return to L.A. for one more try. In early 2009 he released the Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs mixtape to critical and message board acclaim. The Midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik mixtape soon followed, as did a feature in The New Yorker that found writer Sasha Frere-Jones declaring Gibbs "the one rapper I would put money on right now." Late in the year he released the 81-song mixtape The Labels Tryin' to Kill Me. As the mixtape's title inferred, Gibbs had, like Jay Electronica, become a 21st century Internet-age hip-hop star, able to draw press and earn a loyal following via downloads and mixtapes instead of the usual industry channels. He finished 2009 proudly unsigned but in 2010 he made a rare aboveground appearance with the Str8 Killa EP, released on the Decon label. Two years later he released two collaborative efforts: Piata with Madlib, an album on the underground producer's Madlib Invazion label; and The Tonite Show with DJ Fresh, an entry in the West Coast producer's collaborative series. ~ David Jeffries

    WOO HAH! Run The Jewels + Joey Bada$$ + Freddie Gibbs + Vince Staples + Your Old Droog + Fresku + Remi Kolawole WOO HAH! keert op zaterdag 4 juli terug naar de Spoorzone in Tilburg en wordt ook dit jaar weer georganiseerd door ons en Mojo Concerts. Na de succesvolle editie van 2014 pakken we dit jaar flink uit met een extra podium, meer artiesten en een groter festivalterrein! De eerste namen voor deze tweede editie zijn: Het illustere Amerikaanse duo Run The Jewels bestaat uit niemand minder dan rapper/producer El-P en rapper Killer Mike. In 2014 brachten zij 'Run The Jewels 2' uit en verrasten zij vriend en vijand met het immense succes van dit album. Zo werd het tot album van het jaar uitgeroepen bij o.a. Pitchfork, Stereogum en Complex. Met Joey Badass heeft WOO HAH! de tweede internationale naam van formaat weten te strikken. De jonge rapper uit Brooklyn, New York bracht gisteren zijn langverwachte debuutalbum 'B4.DA.SS' uit. Het album belooft nu al een klassieker in het genre te worden door terug te keren naar de '90's boombap hiphop.De eveneens jonge rapper Vince Staples deed mee op het album van Earl Sweatshirt, maar bewees recentelijk met zijn 'Hell Can Wait' EP dat hij klaar is voor een volwaardige solo carrire. Daarnaast brengt ook Freddie Gibbs zijn onvervalst rauwe gangsta rap naar Tilburg. De andere namen die bevestigd zijn voor WOO HAH! 2015: Your Old Droog, door kenners betiteld als 'de nieuwe Nas', Eindhovens enige echte Fresku (die dit jaar met nieuw materiaal komt!) en de Australische Remi Kolawole. Meer toevoegingen aan de line-up worden de komende weken bekend gemaakt.Tickets voor WOO HAH! 2015 zijn nu verkrijgbaar. De ambassador tickets zijn reeds uitverkocht. Reguliere tickets a 39,- (excl. servicekosten) zijn nu verkrijgbaar.
