History suggests that Freddie Gibbs and Madlib have something epic in the works in their highly anticipated album Piñata. Today, the duo debuted a new record called “Robes,” featuring Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis, on Benji B’s show on BBC Radio 1 that reaffirms those claims.
This track is oh so smooth. We’re talking the kind of music made to be heard in a chair with a proper ottoman and glass of cognac in tow — not your daddy’s ‘yak either. Gangsta Gibbs let his Odd Future opposites kick things off on the smooth Madlib instrumental. Domo lays a verse in which he gives listeners multiple flows. Next up is Earl, who delivers emotionally revealing bars.
Gibbs gets soulful in his closing effort, and even sings a bit so you know it’s real. Personally, “Robes” has us very excited for what MadGibbs have in store on Piñata.
