After a brief pause in the Medicine Show series, Madlib returns with a 28-track, full-length hip-hop album of collaborations with AG, Guilty Simpson, MED, Oh No, Strong Arm Steady and others. Karriem Riggins pops in for a short Supreme Team session, Madlib & Oh No debut their group The Professionals, and we hear for the first time a Jaylib-era track from Madlib & Dilla’s never-realized second album.
The unofficial title of this album is Dirty Demos selected by the Loop Digga, a reference to a fire which destroyed some of this album’s master tapes – a story detailed in the CD’s 12-page booklet. The CD cover is by Isabel Samaras, LP illustrations by Gustavo Eandi, and design by Jeff Jank.
THE LIMITED-EDITION 3/LP VINYL contains 14 additional Madlib beat instrumentals. The covers are one-of-a-kind, hand silk-screened by Hit+Run, with Hennessy-infused paint. Some photos of the LP and printing process are below. More coming soon.
28-track hip-hop album. Pre-order for 3LP and CD.
Expected ship date: Mid-January 2011
