100% New Musical Express Opposites attract on the duo's second collaborative album; experimental producer Madlib and gruff rapper Freddie Gibbs have created this year's 'Daytona' Freddie Gibbs and Madlib play to two very different audiences.
100% The Guardian
93% Consequence of Sound Meanwhile, Latinx rappers like Bad Bunny and J Balvin and British rappers like Little Simz continue to push boundaries with unique perspectives and approaches to music.
90% The Line of Best Fit Album Of The Week When Freddie Gibbs and Madlib first announced their unconventional partnership back in 2011 it was unclear as to how both artists would reconcile the creative and geographic disparities that existed between them.
90% Loud & Quiet For all the giddy, unruly energy, each song on Bandana flows together to make a poetic, poignant body of work.
90% Exclaim! Music Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Bandana By Kyle Mullin Published Jun 28, 2019 9 For a rapper like Freddie Gibbs, any old beat would frankly do.
82% Paste Magazine Smoother and more relaxed than ever, the duo, while still exploring favorite topics like drug deals gone wrong and police brutality, dare us to loosen up and enjoy ourselves on our own “I Don’t Give a Shit Saturdays.” Though the Matthews sample may sound out of place at first on “Situations,” a song about gang life and murders, it actually makes complete sense that the duo would use it here, pushing us all to live our lives to the fullest despite the hands we’ve been dealt.
80% The Skinny It’s been an intense few years for Freddie Gibbs since the release of his and Madlib’s debut collaborative project Piñata.
80% No Ripcord If you’ve heard Piñata coming into this new record, the first thing you’ll realize is that Bandana does not try to reinvent the wheel that its predecessor got rolling, and I think we can all agree that it should never have even attempted to do such a thing.
80% The Arts Desk Madlib's music is constantly oppressive, its crushing bass and dense mesh of samples and found sounds surrounding you like the most potent narcotic smoke, every detail painfully vivid as it assaults your sensorium.
80% Tiny Mixtapes As much happened when Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, after releasing a few underappreciated EPs as MadGibbs, collaborated to make 2014’s Piñata.
70% The 405 It’s an impossibly generous album too, one that keeps giving you new things to appreciate, be it Gibbs’ delivery of a certain bar or Madlib’s use of a certain sample.
67% Nöjesguiden Madlib, med en skivsamling på fyra ton och en förkärlek till udda sampels, kunde utmana Freddie Gibbs som förkroppsligar bilden av en ortodox gangsterrappare.
