Anyway, this is a pretty interesting and inspiring story, thanks for sharing it! Congratulations on getting that job, you know you succeeded when you are doing what you love most. . Madlib influenced me a lot as well. I wonder how many people from the forums met him in person.

I used to be The Al The Chemist Hater Supreme. His work with Oh No and his past year being The Madlib of 2012/2013 had me waking up with the quickness.

I could barely stand on my feet but I asked him about the next Quas album but
He chuckled a good one but I only got why much later

Good lookin' out Kid. Believe dat.
But, yo my Jubi, ese, I do not think that it is anything complex. That beat you posted couldn't get a dollar from my ass. Maybe the one my man GC90 posted was good. But, you shake down the the dude and sniff him out--he doesn't measure up. The stuff he did with MM was ill till I dial back my way back machine to my teens and I'm like; um...maybe not so special.
I guess his mentor was one of the first whose methods I tried jacking so I get it. But, he ain't at all legit in my opinion. Just a feeling. I get them from time to time.

That actually wasn't an Alc beat so I guess your opinion is still consistent!
Were you not a fan of Alc's stuff with Oh No for the Gangrene records?

Dazed Digital: Do you see yourself as an archivist? The Alan Lomax of the crate digging generation?
Madlib: Kind of, yeah. I come from the same mind state. I want people to hear music that really wasn’t played much, that got lost in the shuffle. There was tons of music that was greater than the hits but you don’t know about it unless somebody like, like me or whoever brings it to people’s attention. You know, bringing it back to the people that didn’t hear it back then. I’m one of them, there’s hundreds of us [Laughs]. There’s a lot of young kids that I have inspired to go look for old stuff. We do it for the knowledge, for the kids. Even my kids pick up on things so I know it’s working. It’s not supposed to reach everybody but it’s supposed to reach people who want to keep music alive
My little bio is on Discogs blog as well, had to post my MV picture for that: http://www.discogs.c...-meet-christian
