Video: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Shame

With an incredibly knack for consistency, Freddie Gibbs has managed to build himself up as one of today’s best rappers without any sort of crew or easily hyped up image.  Teaming up with legendary hip-hop producer Madlib for ‘Shame’, Gibbs shows off a smooth side of his flow with what is basically a two part track.  Any fan of Madlib’s work won’t be surprised by the soul-sample heavy beat that still manages to stand head over heels above the flood of other producers working with the same sound palette.  Gibbs isn’t shooting for anything incredibly game changing here but his restrained verses are packed with clever lyricism and personality.  The video chronicles the many women in Gibbs’ life adding some emotional punch to the track’s sampled chorus.
