“Harold’s” by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib

Everyday Tuneage Best Albums of 2014
No. 15 – Piñata by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib

Born and raised in Gary, Indiana, Freddie Gibbs makes for a very interesting match compared to Madlib’s organically soulful production. Gibbs’ nimble lyricism and detailed storytelling of being surrounded by such violence and poverty makes for a particularly impactful album that rises far beyond the stereotypical celebration of drugs, guns and women. A supremely talented rapper, Gibbs elevates his game ten-fold on this album.

Also listen to: “Knicks”, “High” (feat. Danny Brown), “Shame” (feat. BJ The Chicago Kid)
