FREDDIE GIBBS NEW ROLE

By the time we’re able to catch Freddie Gibbs on the phone, he’s already enjoying the breathtaking views of the French Riviera. The 39-year-old had just attended the 2021 Cannes Film Festival premiere of Diego Ongaro’s Down With The King, a forthcoming drama that also happens to be Gibbs’ first acting role. “It’s a blessing to be involved in this, because nobody is knocking down my door to give me a lead role in a film,” he says. “So for me to get my first lead role and get it up at Cannes, where everybody’s receiving the film well, and I was able to help executive produce and write the music — it’s a real experience for me. So hopefully people recognize my acting talent and my talents in the film world.”
