Freddie Gibbs' "Bandana". Austin, TX
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib delivered my favorite record of 2019 with Bandana. This record has been receiving heavy rotation in my life ever since. This record is filled with so many great bars and this line in particular from "Soul Right" caught my attention immediately. Too often we can find ourselves holding onto past pain and trauma from people who have hurt us and it does not serve us any good to do so. This clever flip really shined on me and reminded me what you can miss by holding on to the past. So this is my reminder to let go of any grudges and pain I may be holding onto so that I may continue to receive life's blessings.
I used Freddie Gibbs prayer blanket he often shares on his Instagram Stories as inspiration for the color scheme and traditional prayer hands from Muslim religion as this is Freddie's practice in faith.
