On June 28th, 2019, rapper Freddie Gibbs and producer Madlib released their second collaborative studio album, Bandana. This project is a sequel to their previously released album, Piñata, but it does not fail to live up to its predecessor. From Freddie Gibbs, you receive an amazing performance of lyricism and flow, Madlib complimenting that with his tasteful production, allowing the duo to bring out the best in each other throughout the project.

In addition to those two, Bandana features a range of artists, from new school superstars like as Pusha T and Anderson .Paak, to old school legends such as Mos Def and Talib Kweli. All in all, this album is definitely worth a listen for all fans of hip-hop. 

Rating: 4 out of 5.
