I received this info. bit inside of an email message that was sent from Stones Throw in June of 2005. As far as I know, it was never released. Am I wrong? If not, what happened, was it cancelled or is the project held back for now?

Anyone have any additional info., besides the following excerpt below of the fore mentioned email message?


" MELVIN VAN PEEBLES & MADLIB BRER SOUL MEETS LORD QUAS

Melvin Van Peebles - filmmaker, author, playwright, and ... believe it or not, newest Stones Throw recording artist. Last night in Los Angeles, Melvin Van Peebles publicly announced his next project - a double album with Madlib to be released on Stones Throw. The first half of the album will be his own "Brer Soul Meets Quasimoto" and the second half will be the Madlib Invazion remix. This is being planned a 2 disc set released together in one package.

Mr. Van Peebles was in Los Angeles for an LA Film Festival screening of a new documentary covering his life story, "How to Eat Your Watermelon in White Company (and Enjoy It)". He has recorded several albums released on A&M, Stax, and Capitol Records, worked as a journalist in France, cable car conductor in San Francisco, a trader on the floor of the new York Stock Exchange, but he's perhaps best known for his landmark film, "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasss Song" (1971). The making of "Sweetback" was fictionalized recently in his son Mario Van Peebles' film "Baadasssss!".

Madlib is no stranger to remixing the voice of Melvin Van Peebles. If you've ever wondered who that guy is howling in the cuts of all those Quasimoto songs, we'll give you one guess. Release date and track list for the Van Peebles/Madlib project will be coming later this summer at http://www.stonesthrow.com/ "

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

finally, somebody (other than me) who cares about this project. when madlib came to NY in october of last year, i asked him when this was gonna drop and he said this year. ST were probably presented with other opportunities and they never did say when they were gonna release it but still man.... as u can see, we haven't forgotten about it...

he probably isn't, but in the past i've asked impotant shit and received NO answer. not questions like what brand of underwear madlib wears, but serious questions and i got NO response. so is he ignoring me?? i doubt it. do i care? yes i do. if i ask a question, and it's not bullshit, if it's possible, i'd like an answer. so that's y my sig says "jeff jank keeps ignoring me" lol

Hey, everyone who is interested? I just got back from the Detroit 'Chrome Children' tour show, and on the way out I had the chance to speak with Peanut Butter Wolf, while he signed my tour shirt and took a pic with me. Anyways, I asked P.B.W. about the Melvin Van Peebles x Madlib/Quasimoto project, was it ever coming out, what happened? And, he said that, "Melvin Van Peebles did not give enough acapellas necessary to do the album."...So, I then asked, "...Well, does this mean that the project is cancelled and he said, "Yeah, I guess that it is for now." That was it for our conversation, and I left towards home.

So I guess P.B.W. and that answers it. The project is both, cancelled and will be on hold until the future permits.

I have hope that this album will still be released. They need to work this out.

Nope.

(Egon) drops the following quote: "it features Melvin Van Peebles, who of course was the basis of the Quasimoto TRILOGY with Madlib and the Quasimoto character."
