Freddie Gibbs comes through with the video of the year

With an unlikely entrant as a serious contender for illest video [so far] of 2012 from an even more unlikely duo, rapper Freddie Gibbs and producer extraordinaire Madlib recently released a set of visuals for the title song from their sparse but satisfying Thuggin EP.

I don't know what kind of lifestyle Mr. Gibbs lives when he's not on stage ripping mics with his patented hurried-but-relaxed flow that is at times very Dead Prez-ish (in a good way), but if this video is at least a partial representation of his daily operation, then this man deserves a standing ovation.

And then an arrest warrant.
