Back in 2014 Freddie Gibbs and Madlib blessed the world with their mighty Pinata project, that featured many innovative features and was a real hip-hop gem not just of the year, but of the 2010s so far – and the duo look set to bless the people once again five years on with the release of their upcoming follow up: Bandana.

The latest single from the project has been released in the form of Crime Pays which also has a visual you can see here:

Boasting features from Pusha-T, Yasiin Bey, Black Thought, Anderson .Paak, Killer Mike and more, Bandana has been highly anticipated by many rap fans for a while now, as Pinata has matured with excellence since it’s release.

The anticipation has been felt strongly this year and was only teased further by Gibbs and Madlib on social media over the past few months, then got boosted significantly when the partners in crime released the first sample of Bandana in their Flat Tummy Tea single.


Bandana is due for release on 28th June via Keep Cool/RCA and Madlib Invazion/ESGN.
