Part 3: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib "Deeper"  (from Piñata  2014)
Indiana emcee Freddie Gibbs and LA musician/DJ/producer extraordinaire Madlib, have just released a video for the song "Deeper" from their collaborative full-length Piñata (aka Cocaine Piñata) on Madlib Ivazion, which delivers Gibbs' 90's gangsta rap style and features guest spots from such artists as Raekwon, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Domo Genesis, Scarface, and Mac Miller. The album topped each Amoeba store's hip-hop charts when it was released on CD and also on vinyl back in March. With the publication this week of the music video for the album track "Deeper" (above), they've completed the third part in the Jonah Schwartz-directed trilogy (admittedly a "loose" trilogy, says Schwartz) in which the "Deeper" video was preceded by two Gibbs/Madlib song videos "Thuggin'" and "Shame."

On said "loose" trilogy story arc Gangsta Gibbs is shown being in jail for a while and then getting out - only to see his girl has connected with another guy. Each released back in 2012, both the Gibbs/Madlib videos for the two Piñata tracks "Shame" and for "Thuggin" are below for viewing of the entire trilogy. Parental warning: drugs, guns, violence, and explicit language contained in these three videos. GIbbs is on tour and in the SoCal area this week: last night he played House of Blues in LA and tonight (June 5th) plays House of Blues in San Diego.  Also note that this week (June 3rd) Madlib released an instrumental-only version of the album entitled Pinata Beats.
