Boomkat Product Review:
Not content with delivering 13 Medicine Show LPs over the last year, Madlib expands his Madlib Invazion enterprise with an ace 6-track collaboration alongside MC Freddie Gibbs. MadGib, as you might call them, have an album pencilled in for the first quarter of 2012, and by the sounds of it, 'Libs got some killer beats up his sleeve. Frontside here is 'Thuggin', placing Freddie's coarse raps against Madlib's hypnotic, soul-sampled tapestry. Also included as an instrumental, and with a badas bonus beat 'Riot Call' on some minimal and menacing vibe. Flip it for the fly, uptempo sling of 'Deep', and a rugged collage bonus, 'Cold On The Blvd'. Strong EP, tip!
