Freddie Gibbs and Madlib's joint LP,Â PiÃ±ata, was released earlier this year and is (in some people's minds) one of the year's finest. Now, one of the highlights of the project, "Knicks," has gotten the all-star remix it deserves.Â Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$ and Ransom, all of whom know their way around a dusty boom-bap track, hop on the Madlib joint.
Part of the upcoming Knicks Remix EPÂ -- whichÂ will also feature this amazing imageÂ on its back -- this track brings outÂ the best qualities in each of its guests. Bronson brings a Costco-esque bulk pack of the LOLs, Ransom stitches in as much assonance and consonance as he can muster, and Bada$$ caps it offÂ with a verse that makes us reach for our thinking caps. Excellent stuff.
Downtown bound, Julie Brown all the hoochies wanna do me now
Don Bronson, in all white like Don Johnson
You ever had to take a shit while you're tripping?!
Balls off, all the homies on the ball court
Shit hit like Little Richard on the boardwalk
I'm not the one for all the small talk
