Wale just dropped his new album 'Folarin 2' with verses from J. Cole, Rick Ross, Maxo Kream, Jamie Foxx and more. Freddie Gibbs says he was supposed to appear on the 15-song release as well before Wale cut him.
"Go get Wale new album tonight even tho he took me off it. I guess the n***a gon put me on the deluxe," Gibbs wrote. "I guess imma be on 'Folarin 3,'" he added in a separate tweet.
Wale fired back with strong words for Gibbs, as he wrote, "Gibbs be lying," and suggested producer Mark Ronson had yet to clear Gibbs' vocals. "But also [Mark Ronson] want us to do a project together," he continued. "But FG would rather be a Twitter honey. crazy."
In a series of clips, Gibbs then told fans to stream 'Folarin 2' but also told Wale to "cut this bulls***." The 39-year-old continued to troll him: "I know we going through a thing but you didn't have to take me off the album, mane."
Gibbs is also viewing his 'Folarin 2' omission as a challenge of sorts, saying he's going to prove how good he can rap on his next album 'SSS,' or 'Soul Sold Separately.' "I don't rap good enough?" Gibbs asked before being handed a mimosa. "Well, I'mma show you, n***a. How good I rap.
However, Wale is confident in his own abilities: "He can't body me [Freddie] one of the best on the planet but he know what I do too."
Wale and Freddie are from the same era, both rising to fame during the late 2000s and 2010s. They even appeared in back-to-back XXL Freshman Classes – Wale in 2009 and Freddie in 2010. But they've yet to drop a song together.
Back in Dec. 2020, Wale shared the above video of Gibbs pulling up to the studio. "Big Rabbit! Aye, my man just came to come say what's up to a n***a, man. That's love. That's like 10 years though in the making."
