Tomorrow, we’ll get to hear what happens when Gregg Gillis makes rap beats for extended periods of time and doesn’t shoot them full of Bon Jovi choruses or whatever. That’s when the unlikely combination of Girl Talk and Freeway will release their collaborative free-download EP Broken Ankles. The two already teamed up for the amazing “Tolerated” video (Girl Talk’s first), and now they’ve shared “I Can Hear Sweat,” a sharp and bloodthirsty midtempo banger with a truly vicious Jadakiss guest verse. It also samples Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” Thus far, this all bodes well for tomorrow. Download “I Can Hear Sweat” below.
Broken Ankles will be up for free download tomorrow at DatPiff.
