STREAM: Cults Gets A Street Cred Boost From This Freddie Gibbs Re-Work

We first heard about a perplexing prospective Cults project from guitarist Brian Oblivion back in July: "We're working on a hip hop mixtape of the album. Like, changing all the songs up and getting up and coming rappers, guys like Freddie Gibbs and Lil B and stuff. That's gonna be really exciting. We've been dealing with a lot of really bizarre managers ... interesting personalities."
