Gibbs’ street attitude and natural grit meshes well with Mad’s cinematic sounds (check “Massage Seats”) and deep beats. A followup to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Piñata’ disc, ‘Bandana’ is a powerhouse that swerves from lane to lane without fretting about its exact location at any given moment. “I’m not no boom-bap rapper or whatever the fuck that shit is,” Freddie recently told GQ. “I’m not a trap rapper. You can’t really put me in a box, man.” ‘Cept for that one in our Brooklyn studio. Gibbs said yes to Vevo’s Ctrl invite, and came to crush “Cataracts” and “Soul Right,” two of ‘Bandana’’s hottest tracks. Feel free to share ’em.
