One month after linking up with Oh No for a new Adult Swim single titled “The Next Day,” Freddie Gibbs and Madlib are reconnecting to deliver another mini-movie for their recently-released “album of the year” contender Bandana. This time around, the two legends are enlisting Eric Andre and others for a Nick Walker-directed vignette in support of the Bandana track “Half Manne Half Cocaine.”

Notably, today’s clip for “Half Manne Half Cocaine” begins with Freddie Gibbs in a hospital bed and Eric Andre as a doctor. As the video progresses, Gibbs and Madlib head to the desert, using the sun-dried landscapes that surround them as the setting for the presentation’s second half.

“I don’t like reading raps off a paper or nothing like that,” Freddie Gibbs explained to Billboard, breaking down how he approached the recording sessions that produced Bandana cuts like “Half Manne Half Cocaine.” “I just really been memorizing raps and not really writing them, and it’s just straight off the head. I’ve been doing it like that lately because I feel like it’s more feeling … I think that having a more free flowing style and being more loose with my songwriting and rapping, it gives me a better feel with a beat now … I feel like my style is more loose the last like five projects and I’ve been perfecting that up until right now. And also just the different circumstances that I’ve been going through just my fuel the lyrics for me.”

You can take a look at Freddie Gibbs and Madlib’s new music video for “Half Manne Half Cocaine” above.
