Girl Talk Share Details of “Broken Ankles”

Girl Talk and Freeway Announce Details of "Broken Ankles" EP, Feat. Waka Flocka Flame, Young Chris & Jadakiss. Girl Talk plays April 11th at Coachella


Last fall, sample-obsessed producer Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) announced the news he was following up 2010 full-length album, All Dayby teaming up with legendary Philadelphia rapper Freeway for “Broken Ankles,” a collaborative EP combining both artists’ distinct, high-energy styles into a continuously flowing collection of bangers. The EP reflects the nature of Girl Talk’s prior work while setting a fitting pace for Freeway’s , high-powered flow. “I wanted to work closer to traditional song structure compared to my last few albums, but still include some detailed sample splicing and change-ups when it felt appropriate. The overall structure is what I thought worked best with Freeway’s style,” says Gillis. Keeping in line with the Girl Talk aesthetic, the varied range of songs are all tied seamlessly together. He stated, “It’s always important to me to have an album that works as a whole; something that has a calculated flow to it, which is intended to be listened to front to back.”

Over the past several months as the two have put the finishing touches on “Broken Ankles,” they’ve enlisted features from guest rappers Waka Flocka Flame, Young Chris and Jadakiss, and comeApril 8th, “Broken Ankles” will be available for all the world to download free via DatPiff.
