Take a look at Stones Throw’s new shaped picture disc for Lord Quas’ “Talkin’ Sh!t”. Official description is as follows: On the crime-infested east side of Lost Gates CA, there is a vinyl pressing plant whose brochure says, “will do anything for a price.” Back in the 70s & 80s, they specialized in private press [cont.]
Benji B and Madlib talk indepth about Quasimoto, the latest Madvillain happenings alongside Doom and some treasured memories of J Dilla. Check out video highlights of the interview as well, below.
From the album Yessir Whatever, produced by Madlib. We set out to film the video for “Catchin’ the Vibe” in Quasimoto’s home town Lost Gates CA, but were denied filming permits.
