Freddie Gibbs and his girlfriend, known as TheFitMami, took to Twitter yesterday to dispute the claim that the rapper got his chain snatched during a violent altercation inside of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Buffalo, N.Y.
“Produce the stolen jewelry” says Gibbs in a video posted to his girlfriend’s account. The video shows Gibbs inside of a jewelry store copping new items, and it appears to show the bunny-pendant chain in dispute—apparent proof that the chain was not snatched.
“And I’m in here buying new sh*t with my baby mama’s child support money,” he continued. “You see it b*tch! It’s blingy!” he laughed while getting a close-up of a diamond studded watch. “Produce the stolen rabbit. Produce the stolen jewelry that you say you got, n*gga.”
Additionally, a person who appears to be a jewelry store employee chimes in, even using a cell phone to time-stamp the video as further proof that the rabbit pendant is still in the possession of its rightful owner.
On Monday (May 16) a video surfaced of the Gibbs’ altercation that sparked the “stolen chain” gossip. A witness tweeted, “I just saw Freddie Gibbs get beat up and his chain took while I was eating in buffalo Ny.” It did not take long for the rumors concerning the details of the beatdown to make the rounds on social media. The immediate focus was on the identity of the group of men that attacked Gibbs, allegedly Benny The Butcher’s crew.
Gibbs’s girlfriend doubled down on her man’s claim with a second Twitter post that reads, “all that and y’all still didn’t get his chains.” Under the text is a video that shows the brawl through the window of the BBQ joint with an arrow indicating Gibbs wearing a green shirt and getting punched in the face. Gibbs performed a set later that night with lumps visible on his face, according to HipHopDX.
His beef with Benny the Butcher began in March when Benny claimed in an interview that the chance for another collaboration with Gibbs had “came and went.” Gibbs obviously took offense and has been taking verbal shots at Benny ever since.
These two, however, have a history of working together as Benny appeared on Freddie’s 2020 album Alfredo, and Freddie collaborated with Benny on 2020’s Burden of Proof.
