If you haven't heard Freddie Gibbs and Madlib's collaborative effort, Piñata, you're missing out on one of the finer hip hop records to be released this year. Gibbs' raw and imaginative storytelling merged with Madlib's flair for soulful production go very well together, as conveyed on album cut "Deeper." The track now has an accompanying video, showcasing Gibbs running a drug operation and spending time with his boo, before being sent to prison. Fast-track a few years when he gets released, Gibbs finds that she's found another man, and also has a son, presumably his. Of course, the obligatory weed smoke is present, but otherwise there's a story to be told here - one that neatly coincides with the song's lyrics and doesn't focus on flashy cars, jewelry and girls in skimpy clothing - only reaffirming how rare and necessary Gangsta Gibbs is to the contemporary rap scene.
