In a few months, Freddie Gibbs, the tougher-than-a-two-dollar-steak Gary, Indiana rapper, will release Piñata, his collaborative album with the California stoner-rap producer Madlib. But Gibbs’s latest track goes in a very different direction from his work with Madlib. Instead, it links him up with his home region’s hardest beatmaker: Chicago’s Young Chop, best known for his face-stomping work with Chief Keef. If you are familiar with the music these two guys make, you will not be surprised that “Deuces,” their collaboration, punches hard. Listen below.
Piñata is out 2/4 on Madlib’s Madlib Invazion label, and I can’t wait, but now I’m fiending for a full-length Young Chop collab, too.
