There’s plenty more performance footage from the other night from Gangsta Gibbs to go around. Take a look as the Los Angeles based artist takes his act over to Santa Ana and gets into a couple tracks off his celebrated LP, “Pinata.” Vibe out with Freddie as he shares his story with crowd-goers over Madlib’s hypnotizing instrumental.
Here’s some extra footage to check out of Gangsta Gibbs in action from his most recent performance in Santa Ana. The Indiana native digs deep into his catalog for an energy packed performance of “Rob Me A Nigga” before transitioning into his recent standout single “Thuggin.” Freddie also takes the opportunity between songs to show some of his fans some love and sign their Pinata vinyls.
Gangsta Gibbs performs a new and unreleased song for the first time for a sold-out Santa Ana crowd. Take a look as Freddie hypes up the crowd by asking if they would like to hear some “new-new” material before bringing the house down with two performances of the currently unreleased song back-to-back.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib give the greenlight to BBC Radio’s Benji B to premiere a new collaborative song titled, “Robes,” featuring Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis. The smooth sampled based production works perfect in Gibbs’ favor as he laces the instrumental with his signature montone flow about the troubles of the streets. “Robes” will be featured on Gibbs and Madlib’s collaborative project, Pinata, which is finally set to drop on March 18.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib surprise fans and deliver yet another short collaborative EP titled Deeper. Check out the preview below to the title track and CLICK HERE to purchase the Deeper EP in full which boasts a few songs and instrumentals. Look out for Freddie and Madlb’s official LP Piñata which is set to finally release on February 4 next year. See what Freddie and company had to say on the matter below.
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.
Piñata is scheduled for February 4, 2014 on Madlib Invazion. The album will feature Raekwon, Scarface, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Joey Bada$$, Ab Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Meech of Flatbush Zombies, Casey Veggies, Mac Miller, Polyester the Saint, G-Wiz.
