It's been about two weeks since Freddie Gibbs wrote his famed "Five Reasons To Bench Carlos Boozer" column, and now the Gary, Indiana-based rapper is at it again.
In his original piece, Gibbs -- a Chicago Bulls fan -- called out Boozer's large salary, his ability to mesh with teammates, his Duke background and, of course, his rap song. SBN Chicago covered it all here.
It was more of the same this time around (after the jump).
In a new column released this past Monday dealing with Plaxico Burress' potential return to the NFL ("Welcome Home Plax"), Gibbs let it be known his beef with CBooz was far from over:
One of my close homies told me that Carlos Boozer was mad at my column a couple of weeks back and he wanted to battle rap me for his salary next season.
Could this possibly be true? Seriously, it'd be very easy to say "oh yeah, he's totally screwing around," but is there even a 3-percent chance it's true? Not the salary part, but the battle. I so badly want for it to be true. Gibbs continued:
N**** please. We all know who gets paid to rap, and we know who gets paid to play basketball. So if you’re focused on that maybe my Bulls would still be on TV.
Gibbs then spends about 450 words on Plax before ending the column with this:
I’m out this bitch. You can’t see me Carlos.
Will Boozer respond? Stay with SBN Chicago as we continue to track this developing feud.
