VIDEO: “Giannis” (ft. Anderson .Paak) from Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s amazing collab LP Bandana
It wasn’t a total surprise –following their outstanding debut collaborative LP Piñata in 2014 – but the second round of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib working together somehow has upped the ante. Their second full length, the recently released Bandana, is a top-to-bottom stunner. Right now it is easily atop my album of the year list, and it feels like it would be hard to think of an album that will top it. Watch the video above for the track “Giannis,” named for the Greek Freak tearing up the NBA via our neighbors to the east, and features a hook and verse from Anderson .Paak. The fact that this song –which is excellent and features a classic Madlib beat and Gibbs on top of his game – isn’t my favorite track on the record showcases how deep Bandana really is. Don’t sleep on this record.
