The follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed Piñata album will be released as part of a partnership between Keep Cool/RCA Records and Madlib Invazion/ESGN. The LP features contributions by Anderson .Paak, Killer Mike, Pusha T and Yasiin Bey (f.k.a. Mos Def).
On Wednesday (May 29), Gibbs teased fans with a new drop due out this Thursday (May 30) at 9 a.m. PST. The veteran MC’s 17-second clip featured a soulful instrumental and some print reading “Mt. Kane.”

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib are stoking the flames of hype for their Bandana album. The duo has dropped the LP’s title track just a few weeks after making their return with the “Flat Tummy Tea” single.
The newest MadGibbs collaboration features an assist from Assassin. Although “Bandana” is the title track of the album, it will actually serve as a bonus song when the project drops later this year.
