The Beats contains 10 tracks of instrumental hip-hop created for the Stones Throw film Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton. This is Madlib's first original soundtrack and first 10-inch vinyl release.
This album is being issued with two different sleeves (girls on one, skull & bong on the other) each wrapped with a custom, removable card, designed in the style of the Boss SP-303 sampler.
