New York, NY - July 22, 2019] Today, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib share a new video for "Giannis" featuring Anderson .Paak, taken from their latest album, Bandana. Co-directed by Nick Walker and M. Corey Whitted, the video is a continuation of their previous Walker-directed video for "Crime Pays" and continues the narrative they laid out on "Thuggin," from their 2014 debut album Piñata. The visual for "Giannis" finds Freddie wanting to get out of retirement and back into the drug business. However, an old business partner won't let him back in the game that easily and seemingly leads Freddie to his demise. 

The video arrives ahead of Freddie Gibbs and Madlib's a string of shows which kicked off earlier this summer with a sold-out, two-night residency at The Roxy in Los Angeles. Sets at Royal Arena Festival in Switzerland, Paredes De Coura Festival in Portugal, the 02 Forum in London, and a stop at Made in America Festival in Philadelphia are still to come. All tickets are available here.

Bandana is out now via Keep Cool/RCA Records and Madlib Invazion/ESGN and includes previous releases "Flat Tummy Tea" and "Crime Pays." The physical release is due next Friday, July 26, and t-shirts are available now for a limited time on rappcats. The album is the pair's follow up to their 2014 critically-acclaimed debut Piñata, and includes additional features from Pusha T, Killer Mike, Yasiin Bey, and Black Thought.
