Mr. Madlib

So if you don't know by now that uber prolific producer/emcee Madlib is a musical genius than report to the principals office and get a late pass.

His latest project i
s a group called Jackson Conti, with legendary Brazillian drummer Ivan Mamão Conti of Azymuth. They play Brazillian standards that are all in an improvisational style. I'm partial to music of Brazil cause it has the ability to magically bring light to the shittiest of moods for me, but I think this is release of theirs entitled Sujinho, is something that everyone can vibe to.

Check out their little EPK:

and then just to show how disparate and versatile he is, check out this video from back in 2000 of another of 'lib's aliases, Quasimoto:
