The Figure was conceived and created by the same team behind the Madvillain figure by Kid Robot, including James Reitano, illustrator/animator/director of “All Caps.” Reitano also illustrated the Figure’s box and the 7” jacket and labels. The Figure was designed and sculpted by Charlie Becker. It was manufactured by Blitzway, the South Korean toy manufacturer who manufactured the J Dilla Figures, on behalf of Madlib Invazion.

The Figure is 8-inches tall and stands freely at 8-inches deep. The Figure’s gold case is removable, and the case itself opens for storage of, well, whatever you can fit in there. One of Figure’s arms articulates. It comes in a custom designed box by James Reitano that can be disassembled as a diorama for the figure (instructions included on the box). The Figure comes in a clamshell case inside the box. The 7” record is inserted into a custom space in the clamshell.

Preorder the figure here and listen to Madlib and Doom’s latest joint Avalanche below.


For J. Cole, black excellence is black normalcy.

Throughout his career, even as he has willed himself to reach higher artistic heights, he’s doggedly tried to remain tethered to the ground, relatability always being his main goal. You can see this tension in the self-deprecating titles of his first two albums, Cole World: The Sideline Story and Born Sinner. They paint Cole as the everyman who just so happened to be in the spotlight, spitting bars through his crooked smile. On his third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, he resolved the conflict between these two ambitions by fully embracing both. In the final verse of “Fire Squad” he immolates a crown and declares there will be no more kings in rap, every man an everyman. As he puts it during the outro: “Ain’t gonna be no more kings. Be wary of any man that claims, because deep down he clings onto the need for power. The reality, he’s a coward.”

New Smokebox is out. This time B- Real lights a spliff with the Jungle Boys. The smoked out episode discusses marijuana culture and cultivation. They also talked about their favorite strains and the passing of Califonia’s proposition 64.


Nakon godinu dana stanke, osječki reper Tomba je izbacio video uradak za pjesmu ˝Retospektiva¨. Pomalo mračnu muzičku pozadinu napravio je Giga, dok je za mix i mastering zaslužan Adrian Šljeki Lončar. Posao oko stvaranja video priče odradio je Phat koji je ovoj pjesmi dao vizualnu dimenziju. Kako je Tomba odradio posao bacanja versova i je li mu se flow promijenio nakon kreativne stanke možete provjeriti gledanjem spota.


Novi video uradak dolazi nam iz Siska. Riječ je o stvari koja nosi naziv ˝Barbarin˝, a ujedno predstavlja stvar s kojom Feb i MGC najavljuju novi EP. Također za ovu stvar je snimljen i spot za kojeg je zaslužan sam Feb koji je uz bacanje versova pokazao i svoju kreativnu stranu pri snimanju i montaži kadrova ove priče. Za razbijanje melodijske monotonije ovaj put je bio zadužen DJ Jopa koji je svojim skrečevima upotpunio auditivni doživljaj stvari. Nadolazeći EP je u fazi miksanja, a dečki se nadaju da bi mogao izaći do kraja ove godine.
