Freddie Gibbs Stars In Gripping New Music Video For “Zipper Bagz”

Introducing a gripping new visual, Grammy-nominated rapper from Gary, Indiana, Freddie Gibbs unveils the music video for his Kaytranada-produced song “Zipper Bagz.” This recent hit is taken from his universally acclaimed 2022 album, $oul $old $eparately, now available through ESGN/Warner Records. The critically celebrated $$$ album can also be found on vinyl.

Co-directed by Ben “Lambo” Lambert, Harley Astorga, and Freddie Gibbs, the riveting video for “Zipper Bagz” features Freddie in a seedy motel. His thoughts weigh heavily as he dives into a relentless flow. Effortlessly changing cadences, he asserts, “And my money so heavy can’t lift the bag.” Between shots inside the room, a high-stakes drama unravels, with Spanish dialogue and English subtitles. This intense video adds another layer to the $oul $old $eparately narrative.

Gibbs recently joined forces with Anderson .Paak for a mesmerizing performance of “Blackest In The Room” and “Feel No Pain” on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, accompanied by The Roots.
