Freddie Gibbs with Madlib sounds like it could be a real snooze fest.
Their first song, Thuggin, was.
But second track, less Dilla- and more DITC-influenced Deep, comes off better.
Remember that as long as the production is tight, Gibbs always makes sure it’s another Gary, Indiana banger. When these dudes are at their best, both are pretty incredible… and them linking up to make quality music is a pretty great moment in rap history.
