Freddie Gibbs

Freddie Gibbs is that rare thing, a straightforward narrative rapper, embellishing and undercutting his tales of crime and leisure with abruptly inserted moments of tender introspection. The Indiana rapper's new Bandana is his second collaboration with Madlib, playing his gruff, clotted delivery against the esteemed producer’s airy, fanciful jazz-lounge keyboards (“Crime Pays”) and stitched-together soul voices (“Palmolive”). With Cousin Stizz and Conway the Machine.
