Freddie Gibbs and Madlib have released the video “Half Manne Half Cocaine,” off their joint album Bandana.
The new visual continues a narrative established in the videos for “Crime Pays,” the Anderson .Paak-assisted “Giannis,” and the 2014 Pinata cut “Thuggin.” Gibbs stars in the saga as a drug dealer who got into trouble with drug-lord-turned-nemesis Aurelio in 2014. Five years later, Gibbs runs a cocaine factory disguised as a zebra ranch. Aurelio, in a bid to find out more about the operation, parlayed with Gibbs at a secret location. The rendezvous went south, and ended with Gibbs left for dead in the water.
It’s 2029 in the “Half Manne Half Cocaine” video, and Gibbs wakes up in a hospital room to be greeted by a doctor (played by Eric Andre) after a long coma. The doc explains that Gibbs has racked up a $100,000 debt due to his lengthy hospital stay, and hands him some weapons and armor while instructing him to head to the desert.
In a training montage, Gibbs does a bunch of sit-ups, trims his beard and practices with a combat knife. Once prepared, the heavily armed rapper takes off to confront Aurelio in an ending you’ll have to see for yourself.
