Rappcats have uploaded a stream of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib’s newest collaboration ‘Deeper’ to Soundcloud.
Out on Madlib’s Invazion 24th September, ‘Deeper’ sees the Beat Konducta providing a backdrop of swooning strings to Gibbs’ tale of ghetto heartbreak. Packaged with new cut ‘Harolds’ on the B-side plus a selection of instrumental versions and bonus beats, the release concludes Gibbs and Madlib’s trilogy of vinyl EP’s after ‘Shame’ and ‘Thuggin”. These EP’s have acted more broadly as a prelude to the pair’s collaborative LP, ‘Pinata’, which is due 4th Feburary 2014 on Invazion. ‘Pinata’ is already shaping up to be one of the most anticipated underground hip hop albums of next year, with a roll call of guests that includes Raekwon, Scarface, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Joey Bada$$ and many more.
Until we get to hear ‘Pinata’ next year, you’ll have to make do with the superb ‘Deeper’ EP ( stream and tracklist below ) which you can purchase here.
