Freddie Gibbs / Madlib

Deeper (12"/EP / 2018)

Madlib Invazion (MMS019)

Repress - Contains Vocals, Instrumentals, And Bonus Beats, Plus Artwork By Jeff Jank. This EP length collaboration between Madlib and Freddie Gibbs was first released just ahead of their now legendary full-length Piñata. At the time, MTV called the duo “ferocious” commenting on the pending full-length release they said “Expect vocal fireworks to ensue.” Complex went further, saying, “If you're looking for a darkhorse candidate for Album of the Year, consider the soon-to-be-released Freddie Gibbs and Madlib collaboration…Gibbs is easily one of the most underrated rappers in the industry today, boasting nearly unparalleled technical abilities, along with some of hip-hop's rawest storytelling…” And the Deeper EP delivered against those high expectations with Gibbs showcasing the yin and yang of heartbreak and anger on the title track in a lovelorn narrative that meshes perfectly with the weepy strings and insistent rhythm of Madlib’s beat. The B-side, “Harold’s” – exclusive to this EP – gives Gibbs a chance to ride some low down Beat Konducta-fueled funk in a nostalgic ode to the Chicago chicken-shack that served as the backdrop to many of his seminal life experiences.
