Madlib / Freddie Gibbs

Thuggin (12"/EP / 2018)

Madlib Invazion (MMS014-12)

RE-issue. Contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats embossed artwork by Jeff Jank. Back in 2011 at the San Francisco Madlib Medicine Show tour stop, the producer announced a collaborative project with rapper Freddie Gibbs and debuted songs from this EP: "Thuggin'" and "Deep." This 6-track record on Madlib's Madlib Invazion imprint was the first taste the public heard of the duo’s soon to be released landmark full-length Piñata. For Madlib, the release with Freddie Gibbs marked another entry in an exciting series of collaborative albums that he has created with the likes of DOOM (Madvillainy), J Dilla (Jaylib) and Strong Arm Steady (In Search Of Stoney Jackson). For Gibbs, the album served as somewhat of a departure, affording the Gary, Indiana-bred, LA-based rapper a chance to stretch out over the Beat Konducta’s lush musical tapestry. Back in effect for the first time in years, the Thuggin’ EP set the stage for the pair’s incredibly successful collaborative effort that remains a best-selling release to this day.
