Freddie Gibbs has released his version of Kanye West’s stellar new track No More Parties In LA. In true Gibbs style though, his version is complete with plenty of drug references and violent imagery, as he even reworks the title into Cocaine Parties In LA to give it a brand new drug-trade feel.
The song was released just last week and saw Kanye and Kendrick Lamar conduct a rap clinic all over the beat, which was produced by frequent Gibbs collaborator and all-round genius Madlib. The pair had previously combined forces on the suitably epic Pinata, which was 2014’s critically acclaimed dark and claustrophobic gangster sophomore album from Gibbs.
The reimagined track follows the release of Freddie Gibbs’ latest album Shadow Of A Doubt which was brought out in November last year. He recently chatted to Cypress Hill mastermind B-Real in the Smokebox about the making of the record and how he was striving to keep evolving his sound. With the release of Cocaine Parties In LA, the Indiana rapper looks like he is cementing his place right at the top of the rap game. After beginning 2016 with the release of two new tracks that were equally as great in Dead Presidents Freestyle and Hot Boys.
No More Parties In LA was recently confirmed as being on Kanye’s highly anticipated album, which has undergone as many name changes as you’ve had hot dinners. The finally decided upon Waves has been making just that though as Kanye engaged in an angry Twitter exchange with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa overnight.
With news of that feud that also included West’s and Khalifa’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, Gibbs will be hoping that Kanye is a fan of the reworked track.
