Freddie Gibbs speaks about the encounter with Don Cheadle and the actor's reaction

Don Cheadle and Freddie Gibbs got a chance encounter during Super Bowl weekend.

"The fucking goat," documented in a tweet by the "Big Boss Rabbit" artist, approached him on Sunday evening and remarked that his look was similar to his.

Cheadle's "true story" reply several days later confirmed Gibbs' account of their meeting, implying that this wouldn't be the last time they got together.

“Great meeting you, nephew,” Cheadle said upon meeting his nephew, who will soon be seen in Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of White Noise.

A photo of the two emerged during fans' lively reactions to the friendly exchange, seemingly showing a portion of what transpired:

Social media has been flooded with jokes about Gibbs and Cheadle throughout the years. Gibbs responded in playfully succinct style to Wale's effort last September.

At the time, Gibbs jokingly said, "Fuck you.".

As of this writing, Cheadle is narrating the revival of The Wonder Years on ABC. Billie Eilish, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, and Gibbs are among those slated to appear at this year's Coachella.
