Freddie Gibbs and Madlib share their new single “Crime Pays” with an accompanying video. The track is the second single from their forthcoming album Bandana, following “Flat Tummy Tea,” which was released in February.

The music video is directed by longtime Gibbs collaborator Nick Walker and follows the rapper who appears in a 1970’s Blaxploitation Western. As Gibbs pops champagne around his farm – Mount Kane – in a frigid stream while fly fishing and relaxes in a natural hot spring after berating his workers, the reason behind his “retirement” is revealed.

Bandana is set for release across all digital platforms on June 28 via Keep Cool/RCA Records and Madlib Invazion/ESGN. The CD+LP’s will be available on July 27th (you can preorder them via Rappcats here). The album includes features from Pusha T, Killer Mike, Yasiin Bey, Black Thought, and more.
