Good things happen when Kaytranada and BADBADNOTGOOD team up. Case and point Freddie Gibbs’ new single ‘Alexys’. A brooding, gothic gangsta rap cut, ‘Alexys’ sees Gibbs tell the story of his former life as a drug dealer, weaving a story of paranoia and violence with his trademark, falling-over-its-self flow. For their part, BBNG and Kaytranada conjure up a stripped back, string-heavy beat that sits somewhere between horror movie and 90s-classic, the perfect accompaniment to Gibbs’ amoral rap style. ‘Alexys’ is lifted from Gibbs’ upcoming new album You Only Live 2wice which is set to drop on Friday.
