I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there's a reason why Freddie Gibbs is the only contemporary rapper to be likened to 2pac. The Gary, Indiana-rapper is simply straight G, making music "you probably never heard of on your radio station." His collaborative effort with Madlib, Piñata, houses some of the most laid back essential hip hop to be released this year, merging the worlds of gangsta rap, soul and funk into one. The M.C. is reportedly working on a solo album, but first, he's jumped on the latest in DJ Fresh's (a.k.a. the World's Freshest), the Tonite Show series. Here's the first taste of the ten-track installment, "I Be On My Grind." Trae Tha Truth and Yukmouth also appear to contribute a verse each.
The Tonite Show drops today, ahead of its original May 13th release date. Peep the tracklist below and check out "I Be On My Grind." It doesn't disappoint.
