Madlib – Pinata Beats (Freddie Gibbs Instrumentals)

Madlib — May 28, 2014 | Comments (8)


Instrumentals for Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Piñata.

There are few musicians – let alone beat–makers – whose output in its raw form provides his listener with a full on musical experience before anything is added. Madlib is one. Before a microphone is switched on, before a rhyme even uttered, a Madlib beat stands alone as a complete thing.

The album with Freddie Gibbs, Piñata – being hailed as contender for rap album of the year – was created between late 2011 and early 2013. But Gibbs also dipped back into Madlib’s archives going back as far as ten years for a few of the beats.

Double LP; CD with 8-page booklet; digital download.
