While Indiana-helmed rapper Freddie Gibbs and Stones Throw savant Madlib may seem like an unlikely collaboration, the two started working together more than two years ago with Gibbs’s conscious leaned raps cutting through Madlib’s jazzy-fuzz production loops.
Now the two have teamed up again to release a full-length debut album with an impressive list of rappers in tow including Scarface, Raekwon, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, and Domo Genesis and more. Originally titled Cocaine Piñata, the album ditched its politically-charged name in favor of just Piñata.
Closing in at 13 tracks, the project is bound to please any fans of Madlib’s previous work done in Madvillainy or Freddie Gibb’s ESGN. Stream the album via Spotify below.
