From the Madlib Medicine Show #11: Low Budget High Fi Music here is a track from Madlib & J Dilla from their never-realized second album.
Jaylib was formed in 2002 as Madlib & Dilla recorded separately in Los Angeles and Detroit. Their one album, Champion Sound, was released in 2003. When J Dilla moved to Los Angeles, he, Madlib and J Rocc began doing shows together as Jaylib, performing together for the first time at the Madvillain record release party in April 2004.
Madlib and Dilla collaborated primarily through the exchange of beat tapes, occasionally reworking each others material, or chopping the same beat in a kind of recorded call-and-response.

Wasn’t really expecting to hear something like this from Mistah F.A.B. Nicely done.
From his latest street album I Found My Backpack.
The history of MF DOOM’s debut album OPERATION: DOOMSDAY is a spotty one – it’s been released in at least two different versions on different labels, out of print, bootlegged, and even released once with a cheap scan of the original cover.
This Spring DOOM’s own label Metalface Records will be releasing the first complete & remastered version of OPERATION: DOOMSDAY, containing the original album, alternate versions, b-sides and instrumentals – 51 tracks total – with all new artwork and two deluxe, metal formats:
LUNCH BOX 2/CD and METAL 4/LP BOX each containing a 32-page lyric book, and set of 10 cards with images of the Operation Doomsday MCs.

After Snoop teased us on Twitter with phone cam pictures, we finally get a good look at these!
In an interesting collaboration adidas Originals links up this Spring/Summer 2011 season with rapper Snoop Dogg. The mid top sneaker comes in a premium black leather colorway, featuring purple and orange accents. The one element that hints the most at the collaboration is for sure the eyes on the tongue, which are taken straight from the Doggystyle cover art. Look out got a release very soon.
