However, it might be a while until the project sees the light of day.
Fans have eagerly awaited the arrival of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib's follow-up to 2014's Pinata. Since the release of their first collaborative album together, Freddie has gone on to release three more solo records including his most recent opus, Freddie. The good news for fans is that the project is completed. The bad news is that it might take a while for us to actually receive it.
In a recent interview with Rap Radar's Elliot Wilson and B.Dot, Freddie Gibbs revealed that he and Madlib have completed Bandana but it's currently tucked away in the stash, as DJBooth pointed out.
"I’m done with, you know, that Madlib album so I been sittin' on that." He said, "I got money. I don't need to put it out yet. I'm good, I'm straight. I could put it out when it's time to put it out... I just wasn't ready yet. I wanted to do something else first."
For Gibbs, it seems like everything is a matter of timing including the release of Bandana.
"I feel like it's so serious that I have to kind of like wait to put that out." He explained, "I'm talkin', like, recording over something like over a course of like three to four years, you know what I'm saying? It's like a lot of things that was goin' on with like the jail thing and all of that stuff. There was a lot of things that I wanted to culminate in this album, so I wasn’t ready to put it out yet.”
Peep the interview below and pray that Bandana will see the light of day soon.
