Madlib King of the wigflip
Out soon on BBE records a collection from the man responsible for pushing hip hop forward since the sad demise of his recording partner J Dilla.
Madlib has been at the cutting edge of hip hop production for a long time, however his involvement in some of the stand out tracks on Ms Badu's last album has raised his standing with the lovers of 21st Century Soul music.
King of the wigflip continues this with the track The Way That I Live featuring vocals from a lady who is going to blow up in late 2008 / 2009, Stacy Epps. Also the outstanding track for me on the album is the slow motion, bass heavy street soul of Yo Yo Affair featuring the vocals of Frezna.
I'm a soul boy but I love my hip hop too and the album has a stellar cast of emcees including Guilty Simpson, Murs,Talib Kwali, Frank and Dank and many more
The album will be the last in BBE's Beat Generation series and is released at the end of September
