So, yesterday hip-hop producer Madlib and rapper Freddie Gibbs just released a new track off their much anticipated collaboration album, Pinata on BBC radio, featuring Odd Future cats Earl and Domo Genesis. Right off the
beat bat, if you're familiar with Madlib's works at all, you'll know that the beat konducta put his stamp all over this track. Notorious for his sample-heavy style of producing and his love of jazz/soul/r&b, "Robes" is the perfect example of that, sporting jazzy and ambient textures while sampling Lenny White's "Sweet Dreamer". Not being the easiest of beats to spit on, Freddie, Earl, and Domo deserve props for finding their own niche amidst that crazy quintessential Madlib sound and delivering solid verses all around. Check out "Robes" down below. Pinata drops March 18th.
