J Dilla and Madlib are Jaylib. The project began with Madlib recording verses over J Dilla beats for himself to hear, and scrawling "Jaylib" on the homemade CD he made for himself. Word of this made its way to Detroit, with J Dilla suggesting they do it "the right way." Jaylib's debut album Champion Sound was recorded in entirely separate cities, with Dilla recording over Madlib beats in Detroit, and Madlib recording over Dilla beats in Los Angeles. Only after the release of the album in 2003 did the two begin performing together.
