FROM THE ALBUM 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.
About the single: “Doom’s verse was the interesting one,” says MED. “Doom’s concept was that it’s a text message. He text messages me while I’m not home, so he comes to my house anyway and starts borrowing all kinds of shit, you know, villain-style … going to my house, drinking my beers, going through my DVDs.”
