Cheese and rice; Gangsta Gibbs is all over the place these days. He dropped a critically acclaimed mixtape last year, came out with a  collaborative effort with Statik Selektah, and he recently dropped his material with Madlib; now it sounds like he’s going to be dropping a collaborative LP with legendary producer Ski Beatz. Some of you may remember the single that Ski Beatz dropped with Gibbs already off of 24 Hour Karate School, Pt. 2 titled “Illegal”; if that single is any indication of what’s to come… the Hip-Hop world is going to be in for one hell of a surprise.

Video: Madlib & Freddie Gibbs, “Thuggin”

It’s about time Gangsta Gibbs & Madlib dropped some visuals from their collaborative EP; they released a teaser last week, but I’m usually not too big on posting those. I woke up this morning to a Facebook wall post from one of my musical comrades, and needless to say I was very surprised that it was the video for “Thuggin”. This is one of the most gutter tracks I’ve heard in a long time. Madlib’s beat full of sequential strings is relatively simple, but it gives Freddie Gibbs the perfect canvas to spray blood, sweat and tears on. I can not wait to hear more material from these two; it’s blatantly obvious that they are a deadly duo.
