Freddie Gibbs and Madlib – Shame (Badbadnotgood Remix)

Ganjaology, Rappcats, Freddie Gibbs, BBNG, Badbadnotgood, RemixWe all have our ups and our downs, our ins and outs, our goods and our bads. Sometimes it’s painful to see ourselves in these darker reflections, but we must remember… It’s all in balance.

I was reminded of this tune this past weekend while checking out a good friend’s DJ set during which he really played the badman role. This tune was developed and created originally by one of my longtime favorite badman producers Madlib in collaboration with a newer super cold rapper who’s certainly hit the hotlist, Freddie Gibbs.

In this soulful remix, musical editor Badbadnotgood (BBNG) brings a fresh perspective to this already thought stimulating track. Through his use of live jazz drumming, minor chord arpeggios and crafty percussion samples BBNG pushes the limits of contemporary hip hop with elaborate musical expression. If you’re not hip to what these guys are talking about, spend some time with the video for the original tune. The imagery alone tells all. And remember, life is not all light and rainbows… listen to the sounds and feel the vibes. This is real shit. It’s a cultural thing.

What does that mean anyway… Shame?


Peep and purchase the whole album from BBNG here.
