To anyone that happens to stumble on this grimy piece:
One night while I was smokin’ somewhere ‘round 1am, I had just finished working out some beats that had been sent in for the compilation, and went back to my usual Erykah Badu/ Freddie Gibbs rotation….. Somewhere in there the acapella for “Shame” came on…..
This Ep is dedicated to the artists that created the original stanky masterpiece, Madlib & Freddie Gibbs. There may be no one artist i’ve listened to more in the last 4 years than Freddie Gibbs. No one has ever been that smooth with the mic but too raw for the radio. Freddie has become the biggest inspiration lyrically since Nas first blessed the scene…. There isn’t much i can say about Madlib, who will forever be an inspiration for millions, and millions more to come… A legend ahead of his time and ever expending entity in this universe.….
