med, blu & madlib | bad neighbor


MF DOOM, Aloe Blacc, Hodgy Beats, Anderson Paak, Mayer Hawthorne and Dam-Funk join MED and Blu over 100% Madlib beats.

A couple years ago Blu got a few Madlib instrumentals and put together a few demos. The rough collection became the foundation of what would become “Bad Neighbor“. MED, a longtime collaborator of Madlib, put the pieces together, bringing together an impressive group of MCs and vocalists to complete the album.

Listen and see the full tracklist after the jump.
Released on October 30th, pre-order on Rappcats or iTunes.
