Staff Picks: Freddie Gibbs/Madlib - Bandana

For fans of: Gritty raps on adventurous beats.

What they're saying: In a rare 5 star review The Guardian heaps praise on the duo’s “cinematic series of street stories”. Exclaim mag doesn’t hold back either: “Fans of this dynamic duo's fantastic prior collaborative album will surely be thrilled by this sequel, which exceeds expectations as an inarguable masterpiece.”

What we say: This is a rare hybrid in 2019. Madlib’s trippy sample-happy production and Gibbs rapid fire unabashed crime rap are two disparate aesthetics that accentuate each other nicely.

Further listening: Both artists have a mountain of work under there own banners that is worth a dig.
