Killing a Kanye remix is no easy feat. Nor is it necessarily a pleasant task– Kanye’s beef with Wiz Khalifa likely has rappers hesitant to engage in a battle with Yeezy. Mix that in with the fact that “No More Parties in L.A.” is one of Kanye’s highest rated tracks in a while and it seems unlikely that any rapper wants to mess around with Ye right now.
Well, that didn’t stop Freddie Gibbs. The Indiana rapper took on “No More Parties in L.A.” and came out unharmed. His “Cocaine Parties in L.A.” is three and a half minutes of Gibbs slinging bars at listeners over the melodic beat, which was produced by Kanye and Freddie’s long-time collaborator Madlib. Gibbs raps about Macklemore’s “White Privilege II,” his criminal past, and even throws a nod out to Kanye’s first hit, “All Falls Down.” The rich lyrics are nothing new from Gibbs, but, as usual, they’re a treat to hear.
