Madlib – Medicine Show #11: Low Budget High-Fi Music
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.
