Madlib follows his detour into jazz with a punch-you-in-the-face return to hip-hop form - a collaborative album with Detroit rapper Frank Nitti. Madlib and Detroit-based rapper Frank Nitti first collaborated on Jaylib's 'McNasty Filth,' from the seminal Champion Sound album.
Back then, Frank was one half of the rap-duo Frank n’ Dank and he and his partner were the late J.Dilla’s go-to MCs. Madlib liked what he heard, he promised Frank that one day, he would work with the budding rapper on an album.
Seven years, hundreds of beats, a bunch of blunt smoke and far too many cross-country trips later, and this is the result: a hazy, funk-filled rap album, done as only the Beat Konducta can do. This is a proper follow up to the first Madlib Medicine Show #1 – Guilty Simpson’s Before The Verdict, and it sets the stage for the collaborative album that Madlib will release with his brother Oh No on Madlib Medicine Show #11. The Madlib Medicine Show series is a combination of Madlib's new hip-hop productions, remixes, beat tapes, and jazz, as well as mixtapes of funk, soul, Brazilian, psych, jazz and other undefined forms of music from the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl.
