We're now announcing the release of Madlib Medicine Show #9: Channel 85 presents Nittyville, a full-length hip-hop album featuring Detroit's Frank Nitt. Originally launched as a one-a-month, 12-part series, Medicine Show #9 is the first to break the chronology.
Nittyville is also perhaps the most traditional of the series, and we make no bones about it: one MC, one producer, and a rap record all about stunts, blunts and hip-hop.
As for “Channel 85,” it is far off most dials. This album’s concept TV station runs one show only: the comic-drama, reality-musical called Nittyville, featuring Frank, MED, Oh No, Madlib, and a supporting cast of extras.
The album is 14 tracks including 10 rap tracks, 4 interludes, and runs 43 minutes.
THE LIMITED EDITION 3LP VINYL will contain the album on 2 LP's and a 3rd disc of non-album tracks. The covers will be hand silk screened by Hit+Run with artwork from Gustavo Eandi and Jeff Jank, creating one-of-a-kind artwork on every sleeve.
