Freddie Gibbs and Madlib connect for Gibbs latest video, "Deeper," from the duos collaborative Deeper EP. This video finds Freddie trying to hold his family life and street life together as everything around him seems to crumble when the woman that loved Gibbs for being a gangster leaves him for a man who followed a straight path. One Thing I love about Freddie Gibbs is his ability to flow so effortlessly over a story telling track, giving you a record that knocks but also has substance. Gibbs always comes correct on the track and Madlib's production puts this effort over the top. This track by Madlib and Gangsta Gibbs is off their Deeper EP, which was released last September.
