Freddie Gibbs Shares Update on New Madlib Project, Drops Booming Lophiile Collaboration
"I can’t tell y’all when we’re ‘gon drop it, but we’re just gon’ hit y’all out the blue."
Hard to believe it's already been three years since Freddie Gibbs and Madlib joined forces for their nearly-instant classic, Piñata.

And while the Indiana rapper has suggested that Bandana (the presumed title of the sequel) would be arriving sooner than we'd expected, Gibbs took to Beats 1 to share an update on the project, stating that the album was "back in the mixing process right now, but it’s definitely coming soon" from an undisclosed desert locale. To hold us over, he shared a booming new track with Seattle producer, Lophiile, to hold us over.
