Madlib to release Piñata instrumentals from Freddie Gibbs collaboration

The Beat Konducta kicks Gibbs off his lawn.

Hip hop odd couple Madlib and Freddie Gibbs have delivered one of the best albums of the year so far in Piñata, a damn near faultless fusion of sepia-toned samples, gangster confessionals and earthy, irresistible production of the high standard we’ve come to expect from Madlib.

In good news for fanatics, completists and aspiring producers alike, next month Madlib Invasion allow the beats to take centre stage with the release of a 16-track album of Piñata instrumentals. Piñata Beats will be available on CD with 8-page booklet and digital download on June 3 with a double LP to follow on June 17.

FACT’s Chris Kelly interviewed Freddie Gibbs earlier this year about the making of the album and his movie ambitions. [via Rappcats]
