MADLIB - MEDICINE SHOW #1 - BEFORE THE VERDICT
The blunted beat monster dropped 12 albums/mixes (one a month) in 2010, and this is the first one on his own Madlib Invazion imprint. Talk about a tall order, but if anyone could've delivered on something that crazy it would be Madlib! Before The Verdict features Madlib droppin' his signature rough and rugged beats for Detroit's premier rough and rugged MC, Guilty Simpson. The two smash through 17 tracks of raw, unadulterated hip-hop with only two guest spots - one from MED and one from J Dilla (a previously unreleased interlude from the Jaylib sessions). Many of the tracks are dubbed as "OJ Simpson" remixes, foreshadowing the 'Lib & Guilty collab album of the same name. 17 tracks total on 2 LPs. Heavyweight hip-hop material.
