Madlib to Release Beat Generation Compilation

Madlib to Release Beat Generation Compilation
So far, 2008 has been a fairly quiet year for the usually prolific hip-hop beat-smith Madlib. While his recent Madvillain remix record was an encouraging break from the lull, not much else has emerged from his camp. Fortunately, that will change with WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip, his contribution to BBE Records’ classic Beat Generation series.

The series, which has previously commissioned work from Will.I.Am, J Dilla, Jazzy Jeff and Pete Rock, among others, will come to a close with the upcoming Madlib mix. Due September 29, the mix features contributions from Madlib cohorts like MED, Prince Po and Guilty Simpson, among others.

The label describes the album as "plays like the days when AM radio ruled the airwaves, transmitting a crackling, low-fi mélange of endless sample fodder, vocal snippets, and sonic intuition, turning singles into stars and flipping wigs with each twist of the dial… WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip finds Madlib venturing away from the deconstruction of world rhythms on recent projects and returning to his Western hemisphere roots in hip-hop and R&B.”
