“Back on the bus I used to finger f*ck’er singing Usher…”
What we have here is a new Freddie Gibbs and Madlib track. Is there any real reason needed other than the names involved to convince you to listen? Thought not.
“Deeper” sucks. No, not because the song sucks. The song’s slamming, actually. Haunting ‘Lib production coupled with Freddie’s grizzled delivery for a narrative more hood than quarter waters and erupting fire hydrants in the summertime is normally as efficient as a Ray Allen corner three. That and it also serves as a reminder, as Jeff Weiss notes, Usher’s run from 8701 to Confessions was nothing short of brilliant.
Not at all, the song sucks because it’s a sharp reminder MadGibbs’ collaborative project, Piñata, doesn’t arrive until February 4, 2014. That’s two days after the Super Bowl and Week 1 hasn’t even started yet! In the meantime, click here to secure a copy of the 12″ Deeper EP releasing September 24. That should be enough of a consolation prize.
