FREDDIE GIBBS AND MADLIB-Pinata

This is easily one of the best albums of the year. It feels like the album Wu Tang Clan would make if they were getting their starts in the industry today, with contracts harder to come by and a premium payment for quirky beats.

And check out the long list of guests, including Wu Tang’s Raekwon: Ab-Soul, Casey Veggies, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, and Mac Miller fill out the roster of current-era underground mixtape superstars, and throw in the Chef and Scarface for some old school OG cred.

And the beats, all by Madlib, are amazing.  Check out a few samples below, then go buy the record.
