Madlib had quite the run with Freddie Gibbs last year with the success of their collaborative Bandana project. Now ahead of the release of the instrumental version Bandana Beats, the legendary producer reconnects with his younger brother, rapper Oh No to form The Professionals. The brothers last collaborated on 2011’s Madlib Medicine Show #9: Nittyville then finally followed up on artist Gangster Doodles’ Gangster Music, Vol. 1 compilation earlier last year.

After the lead single “Superhumans”, The Professionals return with heavy chipmunk soul samples and some funky electric guitar riffs in the background for good measure. Other album features are set to include Chino XL, Elzhi, and Adub, and a limited edition all-black embossed & die-cut LP cover with artwork by Jeff Jank. Stream the full cut below and be on the lookout for the The Professionals to release tomorrow, January 17 via Madlib Invazion.
