2024 marks 10 years since Freddie Gibbs and Madlib released their classic joint album "Piñata."


To celebrate, the pair are taking the album on tour again.


The new tour, which they've aptly named "Teñata," will initially see Gibbs and Madlib visit Boston, New York City, and Chicago throughout May.


A press release said more shows will be added soon.


Gibbs and Madlib will be joined on the road by hip-hop group El Michels Affair, who performed with them during their 2019 NPR Tiny Desk Concert.


Eyedress and Pink Siifu will also support the duo on select dates.


Tickets for the tour go on pre-sale via Live Nation on Tuesday, before general sale opens on Friday via Ticketmaster.



"Piñata" was met with glowing reviews upon its release in March 2014.


The project, which includes features from Raekwon, Earl Sweatshirt, and Mac Miller, was voted in the top 10 rap albums of 2014 by all of Billboard, Consequence, Rolling Stone, Spin, and Stereogum.


In an interview with Rolling Stone published shortly after the release of "Piñata," Madlib revealed that he and Gibbs recorded their respective parts on the album completely separately.


"He recorded the vocals on his own," the legendary producer said of Gibbs. "Like, I handed him all the CDs, and he picked out all the beats he wanted, he recorded them at his studio, then he handed those off to me, then we finished it."


Gibbs added: "Nothing in this shit was really planned out."
