Freddie Gibbs and Madlib have wrapped up their sequel to the acclaimed Piñata LP. Gangsta Gibbs revealed the highly anticipated Bandana album has been completed in a new interview on TIDAL’s Rap Radar Podcast.
“I’m done with, you know, that Madlib album, so I just been sitting on that,” he told hosts Brian “B. Dot” Miller and Elliott Wilson before explaining why he’s holding on to it. “I mean I got money. I don’t gotta put it out yet. I’m straight, I’m good. I could put it out when it’s time to put it out, but that’s the beauty of this.”

Gibbs elaborated on his decision to drop the recently released Freddie album instead of Bandana, noting that the Madlib-produced LP might be his swan song.
“I just wasn’t ready yet,” he said. “I wanted to do something else first. I was like, ‘Man, I wanna do this first.’ I don’t wanna put that out yet ’cause I feel like, I don’t know, that might be my last project.”
