Arguably, Freddie Gibbs still holds the position as having one of the best albums of the year with Alfredo, his collaborative project with The Alchemist that saw 10 cuts and features from Tyler, The Creator, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, and Rick Ross. The project also landed at the number 15 spot on the Billboard 200, the highest charting position for both emcee and producer thus far.

Looking to keep the momentum going, the Gary, Indiana artist liberates a new visual from the project for the Conway-assisted “Babies & Fools,” which sees the emcees reflecting and focusing more on family while eschewing certain relationships with women over a loop of Andrus, Blackwood & Company’s 70’s cut “All of Me”:

“My first love was football from playin’ that Madden s***, my second love was hard drugs, weed and this rappin’ s***, alhamdulillah on the nights that I wasn’t havin’ s***/

I say my prayers but I’m rusty as f*** with Arabic, Lord, take me as I am ‘cause I’m gon’ come as I’m is, I might die twice if I look down and see my mama in tears, I gave her (all of me)…/”

Directed by JMP, the visual shows Freddie Gibbs and Conway during a visit to the strip club during the pandemic (judging by the occasional mask in view). The rappers and their respective crews enjoy the women, drinks, and smoke, with Benny The Butcher in attendance for an additional cameo.

Alfredo marks the latest project from Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist since 2018’s Fetti, which also features the laid-back stylings of New Orleans lyricist Curren$y. More recently, Gibbs teamed up with the equally legendary Madlib for their second joint effort Bandana in 2019, which – much like Alfredo – is considered one of the best projects to drop in its respective year.
