While they've released 2 quick-strike 12" EP's together, there's always been an underlying promise of a larger Madlib & Freddie Gibbs project: "Cocaine Piñata." Even though it still has a "due later this year" loose release date, we now have a tentative guest list: Raekwon, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Domo Genesis, Joey Bada$$, Ab-Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Meech (Flatbush Zombies), Casey Veggies, Mac Miller, Polyester The Saint, and G-Wiz. Adult Swim's own Williams Street Records imprint has unleashed a non-album (or possible Cocaine Piñata) track, "City" with Karriem Riggins, which they uploaded to Soundcloud earlier today, slightly ahead of it's Monday Internet-wide release.
For what it's worth, "City" also kinda duals as an unofficial Supreme Team reunion; Madlib & Karriem Riggins' long-defunct golden era Hip-Hop revival crew that's only ever put out a few stellar hard-to-find tracks! Paul McCartney's sometimes session drummer, Riggins almost effortlessly out-raps the self-proclaimed "Baby Face Killa." I'm just gonna go ahead and bet that Madlib has like 5/5 full-length Freddie Gibbs & Supreme Team LP's just sitting in a vault, collecting dust ha. "City" will be available for FREE download through Adult Swim's annual singles series come Monday, July 22nd and in a limited edition run of 500 single-press 7" vinyl records on Madlib Invazion. But for now, check out Johan Schwartz's gangster-ish 2-part short film, "Thuggin'/Shame," which could possibly continue with this onslaught of new releases.
