piñata

freddie-gibbs-madlib-pinata

Madlib and Freddie Gibbs‘ new collaboration project “Piñata” now arrived a the record stores. Pinata is “a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax,” Gibbs says, and the full-length result of a process that began in 2009. It’s an album with a sound that couldn’t be any further from the radio, where, according to the Gibbs, every rapper is Superman, or the dope dealer of the century, who has grinded to the top, never made a mistake and has no chinks in his armor. Read the full interview and order the album on Rappcats.

loootpack

lootpack-loopdigga-ep

Lootpack – Madlib, Wildchild and DJ Romes – formed in the sea-side town of Oxnard CA, a couple hours north of Los Angeles, and a lifetime away from the mainstream hip-hop world. When Wolf signed the group to Stones Throw in 1998, Madlib had already produced an impressive body of work, enough to fill a 3LP debut album (“Soundpieces”) and a series of 12-inch singles. Loopdigga EP collects the rare tracks on those out-of-print singles, each taken from the original master record. The EP is now available at Stones Throw.

“Loopdigga,” the title track featuring Madlib and MED, is as definitive as any Madlib production of this area, with three disconnected hip-hop verses about digging for records, connected by dusty jazz interludes and the sounds of Quasimoto browsing a record store.
