Freddie Gibbs & Madlib "Pinata" Release Date, Cover Art, Tracklist & Album Stream

UPDATE #2: Freddie Gibbs and Madlib make their "Pinata" project available via Spotify.

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib announced the release date for their upcoming album, Piñata, yesterday (January 30). The album, which is set to feature 17 songs, according to the duo's press release, is "a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax," according to Gibbs. The rapper also discussed the project, which is slated to be released March 18 via Madlib Invazion, in the press release.

"I will show you my flaws," Gibbs says. "I'll show you what I've done wrong and what I've fucked up at. I don't regret shit, but I'll show you the things I'm not proud of."

Additionally, Madlib has said that Gibbs is one of few rappers who could handle a complete project produced by him. 

"My stuff, it ain't fully quantized," Madlib says. "It has more of a human feel, so it might slow down or speed up. So you have to be the type of rapper, like Doom or Freddie, who can catch that, or else you'll be sounding crazy."

Gibbs, who says he did that "to perfection" on this project, is also joined on tracks by Mac Miller, Early Sweatshirt, Ab-Soul and Scarface, among others. 

In April 2013, Gibbs spoke about the project, then titled Cocaine Piñata, with HipHopDX.

"I’ma tell you the truth," Gibbs said. "I had a dream, dog, that I had a little baby. The little baby’s birthday was here and shit. You know I like Latina girls and shit, man. I want to say all of my girls speak Spanish and shit. Anyways, so the baby would probably be a Mexi-nigga or some shit. So it was like a little nigga-Mexican baby and shit. That nigga wanted a piñata, man, in the dream, man. I don’t know. I must’ve been cooking some dope or some shit that week, because the nigga started hitting the piñata, and it wasn’t shit but dope falling out the piñata. I was just like, “Damn, man.” They was just kids playing in the dope. They was just playin’ in the dope. It was little four-year-old kids hitting dope in piñatas. I don’t know. It was a crazy ass dream. So, I just called that shit Cocaine Piñata."

    Verses are dope, but the production... There's just dope samples with fucking weak drums - like The Alchemist's "beats". 4.5/5 for verses, 2.0/5 for production.

    • u

      you are entitled to your own opinion but personally i strongly disagree. I like all of Gibbs' stuff but I think his collabs with madlib stand out the most due to the perfect chemistry between Gibbs vocals and Madlibs production. I dont think Gibbs will ever be able to sound as good as he does over madlib with another producer.

    Dang that Mac Miller verse was terrible. Dope album otherwise...

    white people are evil do you know that .0001% of rap is produced by the white man?? they sit there in their big white chairs making a mockery of black music jeeze i cant believe that rap sucks so much because of white people they sit there at the top of the table directing black folks to make such horrible autotune classics... god strike these people of the pale disability down and leave a world of darkness

  • Professor Chaos

    Gibbs goes hard but he previously released Harold's, Deeper, Thuggin, and Shame. Still looking forward to the new tracks with Madlib.

      Gibbs and Jeezy have differences over business that has spilled out into their music, Jeezy and Ross had their differences and got back to making music together, Jeezy is know for haing issues with his business partners. Gibbs said he likes Ross and his music and that Ross is more "solid" than Jeezy but Gibbs is from the streets so his opinion is different from blog nerds who get their info from Google instead of the streets.

    • 313bigmfaz

      Earl spits heat, you probably dont like him because of his association with odd future he murders tracks. Start listening too real rap.

  • Scholars

    Pretty sure it's Pinata, not Piata. But it wouldn't be the first time HHDX published wrong information. Just ask Early Sweatshirt.
