Freddie Gibbs & Madlib • NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

I'm sure you guys already know, we're all HUGE fans of Madlib. Me especially... I'm also a big fan of Freddie Gibbs. When Madlib and Freddie came together to create the classic album Piñata, I remember being intrigued on how those two distinct styles would come together cohesively. My expectations were blown into the stratosphere. 

This year, Madlib and Gibbs released a follow up to Piñata, entitled Bandana. Once again this duo reignites a special chemistry, with Madlib supplying the beats and samples, and Freddie supplying wild, braggadocios lyrics. I opened up YouTube this morning and saw that NPR released a new Tiny Desk Concert with the dynamic duo, ACCOMPANIED BY EL MICHELS AFFAIR!! This just isn't fair...
