Label: Stones Throw
Key Track: "America's Most Blunted"

Madlib and MF Doom team up for one of few underground rap records that live up to the hype, a disc with equal parts buttery soul samples and delightfully off-kilter obtuse rhymes. Peanut Butter Wolf thanks them for making him a thousandaire.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Madlib produced "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Strange Ways" in Brazil using a portable turntable, a cassette deck, and a SP303 sampler.
