Freddie Gibbs & Madlib are about to release the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2014 album, Piñata. The proven successful rapper and producer collaboration has already spawned a number of hits. Now we have the most recent single, “Crime Pays”. This is the follow-up single to “Flat Tummy Tea” released earlier this year. The Freddie Gibbs and Madlib Bandana album will be released on June 28th.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib have also revealed a visual for “Crime Pays” directed by frequent Gibbs collaborator Nick Walker. A take on the 70’s Blaxploitation Western, the video centers around a turn of fortune. A life of seeming bucolic opulence in a farm – Mount Kane – in the mountains after a drug bust turns violent. As Gibbs pops champagne in a frigid stream while fly fishing and relaxes in a natural hot spring after berating his workers, the reason behind his “retirement” is revealed.
Bandana is set to have 15 tracks. The album will be released via Keep Cool/RCA Records and Madlib Invazion/ESGN. The album features Pusha T, Killer Mike, Yasiin Bey, Black Thought, and more.
