Cold Day In Hell 
In 2011, Gibbs released for free Cold Day In Hell, a frigid offering flaunting Gangsta Gibbs' street-savvy vernacular with verses from a veritable who's-who of likeminded spitters; the venerable Young Jeezy, Three Six Mafioso Juicy J, Rocafella ex-pat Freeway and West Coast stalwart Dom Kennedy are among the lyricists tapped for the project. Once again, Freddie is pulling no punches, unleashing his verbal vendetta over production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Big K.R.I.T., Cardo, DJ Burn One, Speakerbomb, Block Beattaz, Beatnick & K-Salaam and more. On December 11, 2012 Gibbs announced he was no longer a member of Young Jeezy's CTE label. He alliterated saying there is no beef between the two rappers.

Critics have recognized Gibbs' technically proficient and stylistically diverse rapping. He was featured on the best selling popular third person shooter Max Payne 3 official sound track. likening his skill to that of Eddie Van Halen vis-à-vis the guitar.
