Freddie Gibbs wants the rap game to implement a G league.

On Monday (Dec. 27), the “Big Boss Rabbit” emcee took to Twitter to send a message to his followers. “Rap need a G league. Respectfully,” he tweeted. For those who are confused, a G league is the NBA’s official minor league basketball organization. It’s where players go to develop their skills and get a feel for how players in the major league play.

Although Gibbs didn’t specify who should be in rap’s G league, we know for sure that he won’t be. The Indiana native recently earned his first Grammy nomination for his critically acclaimed album Alfredo and he is gearing up to release SSS, which he revealed to REVOLT could possibly be his last rap album. “I ain’t gotta rap no more, man. After SSS, Ima show y’all… I’m ‘bout to bust out with an R&B album,” he said.

“R&B is what I started out doing before all the rap shit,” he added. “Now, all you niggas just wanna make me rap all day, and I don’t wanna rap. I wanna go back to my roots. I tried to get signed as an R&B singer in 2004, but every label in the world denied me. So, I had to do rap to get in the door.”

Earlier this month, Gibbs announced that he would be hitting the road for the “Space Rabbit Tour,” a 22-stop trek that will kick off next April in San Francisco, alongside Zack Fox, MIKE and redveil. It will run through several cities, including Dallas, Atlanta, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and wrap up on June 3 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Tickets for the “Space Rabbit Tour” went on sale on Dec. 17.
