Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Deeper

blame it on JES7 September 3, 2013

Gangsta Gibbs & Madlib have released their final 12″ EP which serves as a teaser to their full length LP, Piñata due out for a Feb 2014 release. Piñata will be set to feature the likes of… ready for it? Raekwon, Scarface, Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$, Ab Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Casey Veggies, Mac Miller and more. Pre-order the Deeper EP here.

On the Deeper EP, Gibbs showcases the yin and yang of heartbreak and anger on the title track, in a lovelorn narrative that meshes perfectly with the weepy strings and insistent rhythm of Madlib’s beat. We haven’t heard something like this in rap music since Nas’ “One Love,” nearly twenty years ago. The b-side, “Harolds” – exclusive to this EP – gives Gibbs a chance to ride some low down Beat Konducta-fueled funk in a nostalgic ode to the Chicago chicken-shack that served as the backdrop to many of his seminal life experiences.

    DOPE. Gibbs is the best doing story songs. anyone have a link to Harold’s????

  • da boss

    One day people will call Gibbs a legend…along with others Kendrick, KRIT, Cole and a couple others. How many other artists have 6, about to be 7, album quality projects? So what if the industry doesn’t fuck with him?!? I refuse to consider dudes like Ross, Wiz, Wale, Meek Mill, Tyga, Wayne, Drake, Ace Hood, Big Sean, Mac Miller, etc as legends. HELL NO! Gibbs been out rapping all those dudes and been getting a tenth of the shine. Gibbs = the King of the Underground
