Not the best year as far as releases go, but 2010 was cool because of MMS imo.

Technically this year should be considered a catastrophe for ST specifically because of The Madlib's MS releases. I say this due to the fact that the MS series was released on The Madlib's own Invazion label because he left ST at the end of 09.

For me the Madlib Invazion of 2010 got me interested in ST. I purchased hundreds of $ worth of previous releases every month when I ordered the new MMS. Madlib deserved his own imprint and I considered it as a sub-label of ST. With the amount of attention it brought to this label they can't consider it a catastrophe.

2002 sophomore year. I guess some guy broke into a car and threw all these cds on the street. My friend found them and brought them to school.He let me pick through em and i picked some and saw the cover and decided to give it a listen. Peanut butter wolf-my vinyl weighs a ton...It all started there for me.

Eh I would say that it wasn't as bad as how things are now given that the MS stuff was still being sold on ST instead of Rappcats (as far as I remember anyway). It's def clear now that he's doing his own thing with Egon/Now-Again folks.

What's funny is that I think the money he made off the Medicine Show stuff is what helped pretty much fund the future of Madlib Invazion/Rappcats being a separate entity.

^ This is partially why the PBW/Egon split is so damn intriguing to me. I guess we'll have to wait for the The Madlib biography to drop before we get the full story of the ST/NA divorce and The Madlib's subsequent partnering with Egon as his manager.

This year was pretty amazing with Rap Album One, Anika EP, Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent, Vex Ruffin, another Krak Attack, This Generation and Troubadour. On top of that there's the Donuts 7"s, Yessir Whatever and 7 Days Of Funk!

It's hard to beat '04 but I think this year at least came close.

Madlib Invasion/Rappcats pre-dates 2010.

Anybody remember the sweet DLs (i.e. Quasimoto Meets Himself, Chocolate city Mix, etc.) Pre-2010 Rappcats would hook up?

Example below from 2004 (Mind Fusion Vol.1).

Rappcats obviously predates Invazion, but if I remember correctly the Mind Fusion stuff came out on "Mind Fusion Records", right? I think it's safe to say Mind Fusion Records was a buffer against legal action against ST, considering all the samples. Which is what I originally thought Madlib Invazion was going to be, in light of all the mixes. But by now it's clearly a way to sorta distance himself from ST, or at least bypass the middle-man of ST. In a few of the interviews with Madlib since 2010 he's mentioned the fact that he's trying to rework his formula for releasing to try to work less and make more $

Well yeah, Rappcats existed long before then but it wasn't neccessarily a business operation (I thought) like it is now. Also "Madlib Invazion" has always been a thing too.

Also, here's this

Yessir! I used to really look forward to those - Quasimoto Meets Himself is extra-classic imo. If I heard 3 notes of that Chocolate city Mix right now, I'd probably have a hallucinatory flashback :lol:

man I gotta look for those...

I've listened to Chocolate City soooo much. Quas meets himself also a classic. Wish there would be more mixes like these.
