Two worlds will collide on Broken Ankles, a collaborative EP between veteran rapper Freewayand mash-up connoisseur Girl Talk. Both artists hail from Pennsylvania, though their paths have been anything but similar. Now, the two join forces on this high-octane project that samples everyone one from Beyoncé and OutKast to Nine Inch Nails and Notorious B.I.G. Also included are appearances from Waka Flocka Flame, Jadakiss, and Freeway's fellow State Property memberYoung Chris.
"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," Girl Talk says of their collaborative effort. "The overall structure is what I thought worked best with Freeway's style... 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."
