Some people have musical greatness thrust upon them, some are born into it, Otis Jackson Jr. - aka Madlib has hiphop embedded into his DNA. His father was an accomplished R&B session musician who played with the likes of David Axelrod and H.B. Barnum. His uncle is Jon Faddis, legendary trumpeter who played with Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus and Bob James among others. Growing up, Madlib was astutely aware of his familys musical legacy. He was obsessed with Jazz, hip-hop, reggae and collecting records. These obsessions have worked their way into his songs such as Quasimotos "Jazz Cats Pt1" and "Return of the Loop Digga" a hilariously accurate re-telling of Madlibs run-in with a less-than-knowledgeable record store clerk.
After getting spotted by Peanut Butter Wolf, Madlib was signed to Stones Throw Records. No one could have anticipated the quantity or quality of work that would follow. Madlib became the leader of the Lootpack and put out a solo project as his alter ego Quasimoto, a helium-voiced rapper that Jackson created on a whim and later developed into a full-length album. As if that wasnt enough, he is also the sole member of the new jazz experiment, Yesterday New Quintet, which have released a crateload of recordings of late.
Madlib may have been born into musical greatness, but hes also worked his a** off to get where he is. A self admitted workaholic, Madlib has been known to lock himself in his studio for days at a time. During one of his rare breaks, Madlib has taken time out to record and mix this album, much to our pleasure!

This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer, so if you do want to own this release you will have to buy it used. Good luck, and enjoy the Reggae DUB music.
So Madlib mixing 40-some tracks from the Trojan Records catalogue? Yes, I will come back for second and third helpings with that.
Madlib himself contributes some effects and samples here and there, but mostly this is a rock-solid collection of rocksteady and dub tracks that any reggae fan can appreciate.
Well worth the purchase.
We allready knew is trumendous ears for rap, soul, jazz and and funk, well check out this album, this guy must have the most incredeble record collection ever.
