Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Piñata

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s seminal collaborative LP 'Piñata' is an essential cop for each and every hip-hop fan. The 2014 record is full of gangsta rap that is elegant, tough, poetic and street-savvy all at once. Madlib’s on a career-best flex here, his beats rattling trunks even as they spiral off on all sorts of little trips. Gibbs provides the record with its grounding, spitting with the authority and potency of a man who has seen it all and lived to tell the tale. The pair’s legendary boast that 'Piñata' features "all the mother f*ckers in the rap game worth f*cking with" is borne out by a guestlist that includes Danny Brown, Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, Scarface, Ab-Soul and many more. So, so good.

Quasimoto
The Unseen

One of the greatest achievements of Stones Throw records, Quasimoto's 'The Unseen' is a classic of experimental hip hop. Acclaimed crate digger Madlib fashioned his Quasimoto alter ego after indulging in some mushrooms of the magic variety, creating the devious yellow anteater by pitching his voice up a few octaves. Sounds weird huh? Well 'The Unseen' is a bit of a wacky record, though it's psychedelic playfulness shines through jazzy beats, obscure samples and humorous rhymes. It's a Madlib record so you know the beats are going to be top-notch too! 

Madlib
Shades Of Blue

A lovely album where prime beat maker Madlib was given the run of the Blue Note catalogue and was pretty much told 'do what you like'. Which as you might possibly be able to imagine was to use old sounds to create new and exciting shapes. Here, Madlib reworks sounds by the likes of Donald Byrd and Horace Silver to stunning effect. A true hip-hop visionary. 

Madlib
Pinata Beats

Sometimes releasing the instrumentals on their own LP feels a bit of a beg. Not in the case of ‘Pinata Beats’, though. Madlib productions tend to be worth a listen regardless of whether or not they’re adorned with vocals, but even when shed of Freddie Gibbs’ commanding thug-chat the classy hip-hop struts here represent fine work even by Madlib’s high standards. The Quentin Tarantino of the beat-making world.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana Beats

Madlib & Freddie Gibbs
Half Manne Half Cocaine

Madlib (aka Otis Jackson Jr.) joins forces with fellow American rapper Freddie Gibbs to create 'Half Manne Half Cocaine'. Along with rare bonus beats, the lead track here is a pulsating slab of urgent rap, sliding across glistening synths, meaty beats and slick hip hop vocals. Two pioneers at the top of their games.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Thuggin' EP

Re-issue of marvellous 12" initially released ahead of the duo's debut album released back in those hazy days of 2012. Is this good? Of course it its. Its motherfeckin' unbelievable. Madlib's skills are almost unsurpassed in his field, it's as smooth as silk and Gibbs vocals cut in just the right way. This ain't no Snoop snoozeathon. He really worked on these rhymes and the music is smoky exotic brilliance.

Untinted: Sources For Madlib's Shades Of Blue

Everyone dug Madlib’s classic rummage through the legendary Blue Note jazz archives from 2003, the smoky-cool Shades Of Blue, in which our hero made sweet funky hip-hop groove instrumentals out of the jazz samples. Now you can cut straight to the source of the samples, without doing any crate-digging of your own. Neat. Double LP reissue.

Madlib
Beat Konducta Vol. 1: Movie Scenes

King of the beatmakers Madlib has always been mad-productive: Beat Konducta Volume 1: Movie Scenes was the first in a series of several records of hip-hop instrumentals he put out in the 2000s. This one is themed around imaginary 70’s TV shows and films, each track painting a groovy vintage picture, library style.

Jaylib
Champion Sound: The Remix

Where Madlib and J Dilla come together, beatheads collapse left right and centre from sheer amazed joy. This release has Madlib remixing Dilla’s Champion Sound track, as well as a previously unheard collaboration that dates back to the pair’s original Jaylib sessions. Double LP on Stones Throw.

Bad Neighbor Instrumentals

Madlib’s 2015 collaboration with M.E.D. and Blue gets stripped back to the instrumentals and served up afresh for the keen beat-heads among you. The subtraction of the flows just lets the listener relish the details of Madlib’s woozy funk-sample constructions, and Bad Neighbour Instrumentals even features an extra three tracks of bonus beats! Double LP on BangYaHead.

Madvillain
Madvillainy

Madlib and MF DOOM present an experimental hiphop tour de force that was beset by internet leaks before completion, and initially abandoned midway by its creators before seeing the light of day in 2004 and becoming a crossover hit. Brimming with unlikely samples (Mothers of Invention, Gentle Giant, Bill Evans, Steve Reich, Egg) and DOOM’s characteristically dazzling and dense rhymes.
