That beat is WASTED on domo and fucking earsweater bringing the snooze rap over MADLIB BEATS. Gibbs whole vibe doesn't even mesh with what these squares are rapping about.

I dig both Earl and Domo, but I agree this should have just been a Freddie track imo.
He was the only one who got the flow right I think.

Edit: Also, I have no idea what the Mac Miller feature will sound like but I'll call that as my skip track ^_^

Can't wait for March.

Earl + Domo cannot handle this beat, for whatever reason. But Gibbs and the beat itself save the track.
The soundscape of this album is going to be amazing. Very cohesive. I am predicting a lot of instrumental plays. Better be available on wax!

looped up part of the same sample when i first got my 404 years back, haven't heard it in a while, definitely still feeling the vibe, not really into the guest spots either but i guess i can stomach them for some fresh madlib beats

Think I've heard the beat a loooong time ago. Maybe on a mix or a random yt video? It was bit faster than this version.

I hope the album plays well and doesn't feel too feature-heavy. EP's built some hype.

I think eventually they'll grow more mature/their sound will follow/etc (thought Wolf was a good example of this direction).

What I'm tired of is all of them being shoehorned into tracks/features where they don't sound right on the beat or just shouldn't be rapping with the other artists. Guess it's hard to resist cashing in on the OF fans though.

The reason why gibbs and MADLIB work is because it's an exercise in aesthetics. there is a focus on beats and gibbs rap style. This is why having features, especially snore raps from odd future or WACK Miller are a particularly a BAD Idea.

Yeah like in last post, this really comes down to making more $$$$ I imagine vs wanting to specifically work with these dudes. Danny Brown's an exception though, FG got a feature on Old :P

Wonder who else will be paired up, if anybody. Casey Veggies and Mac Miller? they're more OF affiliates aren't they? Why are there so many young ass rappers on this?

Like Gun Crazy said, $. Appeal to their young fan base and try to make a few more sales/illegal downloads. At least The Madlib will most likely be exposed to a pretty sizable amount of new listeners because of it.

Robes is tight. Gibbs kills it of course but the other too don't ruin anything for me and are pretty damn smooth IMO. Guest verses seem to suit the concept of the album: “a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax”. And the beat is exceptional.

felt the same way about this originally, but i'm actually excited to hear a lot of different rappers over some madlib beats. it should be very interesting. also, i am a big Gibbs fan, but too much Gibbs is NOT a good thing, and that's why he's yet to really release a magnum-opus.

at this point, i'm fully expecting Pinata to be a good album, one i listen to a lot, but not the best thing to come out of either madlib (obviously) or gibbs. i hope this is a nice foreshadow to future Gibbs works, when he really comes into his own and can hopefully continue to get new beats from Otis.

very excited for this release, and haven't listened to Robes yet, although I am a fan of Earl apparently contrary to the majority of this site, which is cool and i fully understand it. Any way you wanna look at it Doris was dope though, and people who "cant wait for the OF fad to fade" are probably gonna have to keep waiting. For as many people who despise them, there seems to be 10 that love them.

I'm actually an Earl fan myself, enjoyed Doris thoroughly. And I like your optimism about hearing new people on Madlib beats, that's definitely a good way to look at things. I hope they're all up to the challenge, I'm definitely excited about the Raekwon track. But I gotta say in my opinion neither Earl nor Domo sound like they can ride on that beat properly. It's funny because Madlib in the press release for the album was saying that it takes a special kind of rapper to rhyme properly on his stuff, like Freddie or DOOM. And I think this track is a really good example of that, because the first two verses just sound off to me, they're alright verses but they don't sound great over the beat. And then Gibbs shows up and it's like "oh, okay so this is a flow that actually fits the beat". I've always sorta taken this whole "Gibbs is a master rhyme technician" narrative that a lot of people on this board push with a grain of salt, but that moment of realization definitely has sorta turned me towards that way of thinking, even though his subject matter gets a little repetitive.

I was really disappointed in Earl on this track, considering he's such a self-proclaimed madlib fan and this is his first shot at one of his beats.

Plus OF is wack. They need their lazy, basic, underdeveloped production to accentuate their boring, supposedly "shocking and controversial" rhymes. I don't got time for these niggas to "mature as rappers." There are niggas that rap better and are younger than the OF kids(joey baddass).

Listen to these cats on this song. then listen to how gibbs arrives on the track. They are TOTALLY out of place, and aren't fitting no "blacksploitation theme." Was either of their flows rememberable?

Summed up my similar feelings quite well! This track def made me come to that realization as well.

Go see Gibbs live. He is an outstanding performer. The couple times I've seen him he will rap acapella numerous times throughout the set to really emphasize what a great flow he has. Look beyond the subject matter and he is easily one of the most technical cats doing the damn thing in the rap game.

I dont know what your problem is. I think Gibbs sounds more like a poorly thrown together blend while the other two sound more "live" than Gibbs. Recorded through a potatoe maybe? I dont know
