Freddie Gibbs & Madlib

Album: TBA
Release Date: TBA
During a May 2016 conversation at Red Bull Music Academy, enigmatic loop-digging genius Madlib revealed that he and Midwest thug-poet Freddie Gibbs are working on a follow-up to their 2014 collabo Piñata. He added that the beats he gave Gibbs were originally made for Kanye West. (Madlib and West memorably joined forces for "No More Parties in L.A.") When asked about a possible release date, Madlib answered in typically cryptic fashion, "Ain't no telling. … We got tracks recorded, but that don't mean they're gon' come out." Meanwhile, Gibbs wrote lyrics for the project while he languished in an Austrian prison last summer amidst sexual-assault allegations. In September, he was acquitted of all charges.
