After hearing the first leak from their collaborative EP yesterday, Freddie Gibbs and Statik Selektah have delivered another preview of their recorded-in-less-than-24-hours effort, Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away. Whereas as “Rap Money” rode with a Cali-esque bounce, “Already” is a moodier affair laced with a chipmunk soul-driven beat from Selektah. His instrumental sets the tone for guest Trae tha Truth’s gravelly introspection and Gibbs’ head-in-his-hands frustration, which includes the line “We got Obama but Capitol Hill still ain’t feelin’ us/Makin’ laws to get rid of us.” It’s sounding like this EP could be another winner for the Gary, Ind. native, who will hopefully deliver his Cold Day In Hell mixtape sooner than later.
Stream the track below. Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away is out now on iTunes.
