In the shop: FREDDIE GIBBS & MADLIB – SHAME
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Shame EP follows where Thuggin’ left off: with Gibbs effectively spooling street stories onto the Beat Konducta’s wax. “Shame” featuring singer B.J. The Chicago Kid, is Gibbs’ honest appraisal of a one night stand; “Terrorist” is all killer, no filler – a short, terrifying rap offset by a cheeky fusion jazz sample. The Shame EP also contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats.
The duo’s as-of-yet untitled album is planned for release in the third quarter 2012.
