Hi-Res
In 2014, at the height of his powers, Freddie Gibbs joined forces with one of the most cult and respected beatmakers in underground hip-hop, Madlib, who is 9 years Gibbs’ senior. The Hoosier and the Californian released Piñata, a powerful album that complemented and maximized their strengths. Madlib, for example, had never worked before on such gangsta/thug punchlines. The record features some incredible guests (Danny Brown, Raekwon, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, Scarface), while Madlib’s instruments perfectly pursue the contours of Gibb’s soft, classy and deliciously old-school flow, very reminiscent of Tupac. Five years later, on their impeccable second collaboration, not much has changed except the names on the guest list (Killer Mike from Run The Jewels, Pusha T, Anderson .Paak, Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def and Black Thought from the Roots). Madlib draws slightly less from his dusty vinyl record collection and updates and modernizes the production. That said, it remains a mature work that shows a middle finger to our era's norms and opts to refine its own style. An instant classic. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
