Gibbs’ girlfriend debunked that rumor with a video showing him purchasing new jewelry on Monday. “Produce the stolen jewelry,” Gibbs says. “Produce the stolen rabbit. Produce the stolen jewelry that you got n***a.”

People have connected the attack on Gibbs to Benny the Butcher, who he has beef with. However, it hasn’t been confirmed if the people in the clip were actually associated with Butcher.
Freddie Gibbs and Benny The Butcher have been verbally sparring with each other for the past few months with Gibbs trolling the Griselda rapper on social media. Their feud initially started when Benny claimed that a possible collaboration with Gibbs “came and went” during Spotify’s Most Necessary Live interview. Gibbs took offense and has been poking fun at Benny, even mocking his November 2020 attempted robbery incident where the rapper was shot in his leg.
Gibbs and Benny collabed on “One Way Flight,” a single on Benny The Butcher’s 2020 Burden of Proof album.
