Now all that can be embodied in one guy, like J Dilla and Madlib. Oxnard California is “wine country”. What does his name mean? It’s an acronym for Mind Altering Demented Lesson In Beats.
UndergroundwMadlib is a Grammy nominated California-based DJ, multi-instrumentalist, rapper, and music producer. Known under a plethora of pseudonyms, he is one of the most prolific and critically acclaimed hip hop producers of the 2000s and has collaborated with a myriad of hip hop artists, including The Alkaholiks, Mos Def, De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Talib Kweli, A.G., MF DOOM (as Madvillain), and the late J Dilla (as Jaylib). Madlib has described himself as a "DJ first, producer second, and MC last,”and he has done several projects as a DJ, mixer, or remixer. Madlib has been an influence on an upcoming generation of producers and musicians, many of which prefer Madlib's abstract styles.
