The rapper-producer duo of Freddie Gibbs (Gary, Indiana) and Madlib (Oxnard, California) could not have worked out better than it already has, as their debut collaborative album Pinata from earlier this year has reached a level of critical and fan acclaim very few hip-hop albums have seen in recent memory. And now their excellent “Knicks” cut gets a remix from the great Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, and Ransom. Damn, now that’s a stacked line-up. Listen after the jump and be on the look out for Gibbs and Madlib’s forthcoming Knicks Remix EP due out Nov. 18.
