i'm pretty sure u're asking that question b/c either u're pllain curious. or it could be b/c u're a beatmaker urself. whatever the reason, a question like that, on this board, will u probably get u some sarcarsm, a little backlash and maybe a couple of answers from the board members.

if u want to know what equipment he uses, go to his artist page: stonesthrow.com/madlib, and read the interviews on him and u'll get an idea.

the man himself said "im just trying to show people that it doesn't matter what equipment you use it's what you put into it. Source

surprisingly, the article i go that quote from gives u an idea of what he uses. but, if u check the interview date, it dates back to 2003 so who knows what he's using these days.

only people that would really know are his close friends and people that work with him. and they don't frequent this board. so man, just read the articles, and hopefully that'll give u an idea.

sometimes it's because rappers want to make themselves seem more important than they really are, but it's probably because he has nothing else to say. same goes with cussing.

Honest, my flow leaves the competition jawless
Thaw out the rest with sparks, rubbing the voice raw
My throat bleed all over beats made by King Kongs"

Let's play a game: First person who can tell me who produced this song, simply by listening to the beat (no cheating), gets... a free cookie.
