The long-awaited project from Gregg Gillis & Leslie Pridgen

Last week we premiered the new project from mashup mastermind Girl Talk and revered Philly rapper Freeway, dubbed Broken Ankles. It was for their “Tolerated” video featuring Waka Flocka Flame, and was basically one of the most humorously violent videos in a long bit.

Master mashup virtuoso Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) has taken the last year off of his grinding tour schedule to concentrate on making beats — like, actual beats that other people would rap on instead of sampled and layered hits. After recording a gang of songs, Gillis decided to hook up with Freeway (of Roc-A-Fella, [...]
