Madvillainy Instrumentals (2004) / Madvillain
One of the greatest recordings in this history of hip hop, minus those pesky interruptions from MF Doom. Just kidding, MF Doom is arguably the best rapper of all time, but aren’t there moments when all you want are beats? Madlib’s ingeniously lo-fi production of 22 sample-based tracks is music you want to hear while exploring your own comic thoughts.
Pairing: Multiple servings from your favourite box of cereal.
