There’s no doubt 2014 has turned out to be a banner year for Freddie Gibbs, capped by his magnificent team-up with Madlib for the Piñata album. While touring off the spoils of that project, Gibbs has been accumulating fans around the world, with many of them lavishing him with gifts of weed, soccer jerseys, and, yep, homemade artwork. Ahead of Gibbs’s NYC spot on Monday, November 3 at Rough Trade, here’s a countdown of the best Freddie Gibbs fan art.
