Madlib is one of the great hip hop producers of the modern age. His dedication to music, whether it be jazz, soul, R&B, funk, world or hip hop, is second-to-none. If you've ever given one of his mixes a listen, you'll know that he has deep cuts for days. And if you're a big fan of his beats, you know that he is capable of flipping obscure samples into infectious, *very rare* instrumentals.

With full-length collaborative projects alongside MF Doom, J Dilla, Freddie Gibbs, and Talib Kweli under his belt, Madlib is one of the most in-demand producers in hip hop. He's also worked with the likes of De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Joey Bada$$, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg, among others.

Point blank: Madlib is one of the greats. Today we throw it back with some of his dopest productions, along with some of his illest raps as Quasimoto.
