MED, BLU & MADLIB – BAD NEIGHBOR

Christmas came early for Hip Hop heads when Med, Blue & Madlib announced the forthcoming release of new album ‘Bad Neighbor’ along with the MF DOOM featured ‘Knock Knock‘.  Out now, the album also features the likes of Anderson .Paak, Hodgy Beats, Aloe Blacc and more.  Production is handled entirely by Madlib, making this his first…

MED, BLU & MADLIB – KNOCK KNOCK [FT. MF DOOM]

MED, Blu & Madlib will release their collaborative new album ‘Bad Neighbor’ next month [October 30].  For the project’s second single, the trio release ‘Knock Knock’, a relatively smooth track featuring a guitar hook that’s not a million miles away from that of 10cc’s ‘Dreadlock Holiday’, as well as everyone’s favourite supervillain, MF DOOM.  The full album is…

SNOOP DOGG X MADLIB – CADILLACS

  Production genius Madlib tweeted a link earlier to a brand new track featuring the one and only Snoop Dogg, entitled ‘Cadillacs’.  This is some straight up West Coast G-Funk, which is exactly what Snoop does best, and Madlib’s laid-back but infectiously funky beat make this a match made in heaven.  At Province, we’re all…
