Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Share “Bandana” Album Cover and My Body Is Ready

The producer and rapper prepare their first collaborative full-length since 2014’s Piñata.

When LA underground icon Madlib and no-nonsense Gary, Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs collaborated on their 2014 full-length Piñata, it was among the most unexpected—and ultimately rewarding—albums of that year.

Now the dynamic duo are reconvening with a follow-up, Bandana, and eager fans hungry for details have been rewarded with some very promising new info: via Twitter, Madlib shared the forthcoming album’s cover art.

Madlib fans will recognize his famous Quasimoto character astride the zebra (a Piñata motif), with a broken piñata visible in the lower right-hand corner.

While Bandana is still without an official release date, Hot New Hip-Hop reports that it’s expected to drop in June, with features from Anderson .Paak, Black Thought, Pusha T, and more. They also reveal that Piñata is the second in a planned “MadGibbs” trilogy, which will eventually be wrapped up with a project called Montana.

The first track from Bandana is “Flat Tummy Tea.” Listen to it below.
