As previously reported, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib will return tomorrow (September 24th) with their third collaborative EP, Deeper, featuring two new songs, instrumentals, and bonus beats. Already we’ve heard the title track, and now they’ve unveiled the effort’s other original collaboration, “Harold’s”, which may, in fact, be the first tribute song to Chicago’s famed Harold’s Chicken Shack. Listen as Madlib lays down a soulful loop of hazy guitars and handclaps, which Gibbs complements with uber menacing rhymes… involving chicken, hot wings, and French fries.
In related news, Gibbs and Madlib have set a new release date for Piñata: February 4th, 2014 via Madlib Invazion. It promises appearances from Raekwon, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Joey Bada$$, Ab Soul, BJ the Chicago Kid, and more.
Deeper EP Tracklist:
02 Deeper (Instrumental)
03 Ups and Downs (Bonus Beat)
02 Harold’s (Instrumental)
03 The Long Walk Home (Bonus Beat)
