MEDICINE SHOW #5: THE HISTORY OF THE LOOP DIGGA, 1990-2000
CD now shipping; Digital with PDF comic; LP coming May 25
CD copies of Madlib Medicine Show #5: The History of The Loop Digga are now shipping ahead of the May 25 release date.
The cover & comic book for Medicine Show 5 included with the CD and digital formats concerns the fictional, early-90s-era gangsta MC, Rapper X, in a story written and illustrated by by Benjamin Marra of Traditional Comics.
The story opens with a SWAT raid on Rapper X's pad, and quickly moves on to Rapper X's vengeful bloody assault on the LAPD. The comic is so over-the-top in it's extreme violence, it is likely only to appeal to immature audiences, and almost certainly serves no social purpose – perfect for Madlib Medicine Show.
