Rapper Freddie Gibbs announced a collab project with Madlib a few months back. Yesterday (Jan 30) a release dat was finally announced. The 17 track project, Piñata, will drop March 18th. Gibbs recently spoke on what we can expect from the project.
“I will show you my flaws,” Gibbs says. “I’ll show you what I’ve done wrong and what I’ve fucked up at. I don’t regret shit, but I’ll show you the things I’m not proud of.”
Madlib also spoke on how working with Freddie was a perfect situation.
“My stuff, it ain’t fully quantized,” Madlib says. “It has more of a human feel, so it might slow down or speed up. So you have to be the type of rapper, like Doom or Freddie, who can catch that, or else you’ll be sounding crazy.”
The two also plan on taking the show on the road. Check out the announced tour dates below:
