Freddie Gibbs & Madlib: Shame

Chairman Mao's love for Leonard Cohen, Pacman and Peso in North Korea, William Onyeabor remixed and more in our weekly look at music

This week the internet was blessed with a rare and insightful interview by Dazed Digital with reclusive master producer Madlib. Towards the end—after we learn about everything from Madlib’s personal endeavor to consume and collect the world’s music, his knack for conspiracy theories, the potential for a Madvillain follow-up and his plans to burn all his unreleased music just before death—the music video for “Shame” caught our eyes and ears. The gully track by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib features a characteristically strong beat and visual lyrics—a solid collaboration to say the least. Check the lengthy interview for a better idea of how the reclusive’s mind really ticks.
