I heard whispers a couple of months ago about a collaborative project by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib being worked on, but I had no idea they planned on hittin’ us with some shit so soon. To get things jumped off, Gangsta Gibbs and Madlib dropped the Thuggin‘ EP today. Listen to the title track and cop the EP via Stones Throw. Created specially for Madlib’s Medicine Show Tour in late 2011, the Thuggin’ EP contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats. This ish is hard, I already copped the EP before Gibbs finished his first verse. The duo’s as-of-yet untitled album is planned for release in the first quarter of 2012 (instantly added to my most anticipated LPs of 2012 list).

    Listened to this jam two times, that’s how good it was.

    The other track, “Deep”, is dope, too! I want to hear a Madlib track with both Gangsta Gibbs and Percee P on it.. They both got flow for days and both sound great over his beats.

  • i guess i need to listen to this again.
