Stream Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s “Harold’s”

    While there is still considerable time between us and the release of the album Pinata, the exceptional rap pair of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib will release the EP Deeper tomorrow, of which “Harolds” is from and first heard today. From both sides of the board, today’s track seems a contrast to the title track: angsty girl problem lyrics are swapped for more calmly delivered bravado lines (which in the end are tangential to a Chicago chicken-shack subject), and piercing strings for a more bouncy, funk-inspired beat. Pinata is slated for a February 4 release on Madlib Invazion.
