In the caption of a photo with his daughter posted to Instagram on Sunday evening (May 7), Gibbs announced: "new album coming soon."
It's unclear if the "new album" that is "coming soon" is Bandana, the tentatively-titled sequel to Piñata, Gibbs' 2014 album with producer Madlib, but in an interview with Complex shortly after the release of You Only Live 2wice, the rapper did tease the impending release, saying, “Y’all pretty much know that I’m about to drop the bomb with this Madlib shit.”
It's also important to note that, according to Madlib, that "bomb" will be made up of beats that Kanye passed on using for The Life of Pablo.
In the first edition of our 20 Best Hip-Hop and R&B albums of 2017 ranking, Gibbs' You Only Live 2wice debuted at No. 20.
Update: According to Freddie Gibbs' manager LAMBO, there is no new album coming. At least not "soon." It was a joke.
