Unreleased, unheard, and exclusive: Madlib's contribution to Carhartt Radio features only true Madlib music mixed with some known stuff out of his musical universe. An edgy twisted, 47 minutes long collage that melts HipHop and audio drama into one big psychedelic trip. Usually we accompany each Carhartt Radio Show with an artist feature but if you want to write a detailed story about the music maniac from California you need an infinite amount of time to listen to tons of music - and more space then the Internet got to offer. Moreover Madlib does not want talk about his art so much and rather let the music speak. And on the whole there is no need for words because he already translated his emotions into sound. Below a short warrant of apprehension with benchmark data of the mysterious plodder from Los Angeles.
