Funky hip hop from the Cali scene and beyond – both produced and assembled by Madlib
the Beat Konducta as the rumored final installment of BBE/
Rapster's Beat Generation series! This set does a pretty good job of showing Madlib
's skill as an expert producer for others – pairing the right beats for the particular vocalists, whether it's more straightforward Cali boom bap for Defari, horn fanfare and gritty funk for Guilty Simpson, astral grooves for Georgia Anne Muldrow
, or cracking soul scratchiness for his own self. This is also more of a straight up hip hop set than the increasingly hazy, murky, deep funk sounds that have become Madlib
's stock & trade – perhaps by virtue of the guest vocals roster – which also includes J Rocc, Prince Po, Roc C, Oh No, Frank N Dank, and others. 24 tracks, including the funky Beat Konducta connective tissue interludes: "Blow The Horns On Em" feat Guilty Simpson, "The Plan (Pt 1)" feat Georgia Anne Muldrow
, "The Thang Thang" feat Prince Po, "Ratrace" feat Murs, "Blind Fold Test #10 (He Don't Play)", "Drinks Up!" by Frank N Dank and more, plus "The New Resident", "Tension", "All Virtue". "Disco Dance", "Stop" and more by Beat Konducta.
