You can download both tracks at the top of this post and/or stream them below. Baby Face Killa is due out before the end of 2012.
Gibbs recently dropped a collaborative EP with Madlib, titled Shame. You can check out the video for the album's title track at the bottom of this post. The pair have also said they'll be releasing a full-length album, called MadGibbs, this fall.
