New Releases: YG & DJ Mustard take on Freddie Gibbs & Madlib

I wrote about two new rap albums, My Krazy Life and Pinata, both of which came out on March 18. In many ways, these albums represent opposites: YG’s a young rapper on the rise, while Gibbs has been around for a while; DJ Mustard is storming the radio with hit after hit, Madlib exists outside of the mainstream. See my piece here. Below, “High,” from Pinata. Like many of the songs on the album, it revolves around prominently placed ’70s soul samples.
