A few months after delivering his own take on Drake’s “Money in the Grave” single, Freddie Gibbs revisits his critically-acclaimed Bandana album for his latest visual.

Specifically, Gibbs and Madlib are reconnecting with Anderson .Paak for the official music video in support of their collaborative Bandana highlight “Giannis.” Put together by directors M. Corey Whitted & Nick Walker, today’s clip for “Giannis” follows Gibbs as he rides around on a Sea-Doo and handles an issue with one of his business partners.

“We up there with [’90s hip-hop duo] Pete Rock & CL Smooth, we the best doing it [today],” Freddie Gibbs recently told Billboard, sharing his thoughts on his Madlib collaborations. “You got Run the Jewels, and I love what they do, but what me and Madlib do? It stands alone … Madlib gives me the ingredients, and I make the gumbo.”

According to RCA/Keep Cool executive Tunji Balogun, what Madlib and Freddie Gibbs are currently doing is nearly “nonexistent” in today’s climate. “We’re charting new territory; keeping a sensibility of them as an underground act, but also using the power of the label to get more eyes and ears on the music,” Balogun shares with Billboard.
