    This past July saw Freddie Gibbs and Madlib reunite on the excellent Bandana. Their chemistry is palpable throughout every bar and beat on the “knockout record”, but on their newly revealed Tiny Desk Concert, the rapper and veteran producer proved the collaborative magic also lives outside of the studio.

    As part of NPR’s long-running series, MadGibbs threw down a sweaty and stellar set comprised of four songs off Bandana: “Education”, “Gat Damn”, “Soul Right”, and “Freestyle Shit”. The duo was accompanied by New York funk and soul outfit El Michels Affair and pianist Marco Benevento. Gibbs and Madlib closed their 12-minute performance by sharing a warm hug.
