I’ve never fully dug into his work but I feel like it’s up my alley. Best projects? Post your favorite beats/songs.

    Madvillain (MF DOOM Rapping, Madlib Producing) - Madvillainy

    ^Very first break into the music scene with his friends. Madlib Raps on it and does all the beats. Madlib, Wildchild, and DJ Romes

    R-158142-1431784416-1023.jpeg.jpg
    Madlib Remixing songs from Blue Note Records Catalog

    Champion_Sound_album_cover.jpg

    Jaylib. J Dilla and Madlib Collab album.

    They took turns on each song. One song will be a J Dilla Rapped song with Madlib Beat, next song will be a Madlib Rapped song over a J Dilla Beat.

    Percee P is a legendary MC from New York. He should have been a bigger deal, but he always stuck to selling mixtapes out of his backpack, even to this day.

    He signed to Stones Throw in the early 2000's and Madlib produced his entire album. Pretty dope album.

    STH2243CD.jpg

    Guilty Simpson (Detroit MC signed to Stones Throw) had Madlib Produce the entirety of his album OJ Simpson

    He also has a series of Instrumental mixtapes called Madlib Medicine Show. There are a TON of them, but the original 12 were released awhile back and for awhile the theme was Madlib would select songs from a certain country/region and sample them for that specific mixtape.

    One mixtape would feature beats of sampled indian music, the next would feature beats from african music.

    Lot of dope beats in there.

    His Quasimoto albums are cool too, but getting used to that high pitched voice took me awhile.

    Never been into instrumental albums hard but I greatly enjoyed the Shades of Blue album. Of course the other albums already dropped in this thread are great too: Gibbs, DOOM, and the collab with Dilla

    Was never a fan of his Quasimoto stuff though

    Two words: Beat Konducta. Madlib is in a whole other realm when it comes to production. He has 🤬 in his catalogue where you can sit, vibe and at the very worst ask "where in the 🤬 did he find this?".

    As far as albums... aside from the obvious Madvillian, Lootpack and Jaylib joints, my favorite albums he produced are WLIB, Liberation with Talib Kweli and Searching For Stoney Jackson with Strong Arm Steady.





    @Lou_Cypher I necessarily didn't have to do this cuz I'm a weirdo, but most cats that 🤬 with Quas, particularly The Unseen, had to be on acid or shrooms to appreciate it.

    And while I'm here... a couple years back I had a Madlib beat tape called 62 Beats Feb 2005. I can't find it anywhere; all the links are dead and the only torrent available is seedless. If anyone has it in their collection... I got these cheeseburgers man.

    That 🤬 got music forever and under a million different names with a lot of different 🤬 , it's probably just easier to just find a Madlib mix somewhere and let it ride. I'd start off with Quasimoto or Lootpack (his group) and go from there. That Soundpieces: Da Antidote and Lost Tapes albums are my 🤬 forever. Madvillainy (with DOOM), The 🤬 with Gibbs, Dilla, the Beat Konducta instrumentals, Shades of Blue are all fire, too.

    He also has "yesterday's new quintet" which is jazz. He takes jazz records and samples different instruments and uses those samples to make new songs.
