With his birthday tomorrow just a day after mines today, one of my favorite emcees and easily one of the best emcees alive right now, Freddie Gibbs decides to gift us his and Madlib’s newest single, Giannis. Which features Anderson .Paak and is the dope new collaboration many of us probably didn’t expect we needed, but we will all be very glad did with how seamlessly and perfectly the two artists both complement each other over the dark, yet dense up-tempo production from Madlib. Providing the perfect backdrop for Gibbs to kill the track, while Gibbs and Anderon also give an OG’s knowledge of the game. The standout verse of, “Walk tall and never show n***as more than they gotta know. Real G’s move in silence like Giannis. My Greek freak, we did a menage with a friend in St. Thomas.” Really showing how skilled and truly dope Gibbs really is as an emcee with both his flow and double entendre that people may not always catch.
This should definitely hold many of us fans over till the end of the month on June 28th. Which is when Gibbs & Madlib’s highly-anticipated and long awaited sophomore album, Bandana, is set to drop.
