NAS & MADLIB – NASIMOTO (ALBUM STREAM)

With the world waiting on Nas’ new album, an individual by the name of DBegun blended Nas vocals with the instrumentals from Quasimoto’s The Unseen to create the Nasimoto blend album. 21 tracks of Nas and Madlib goodness only leads us to wonder what a real album from these two would sound like.

MADVILLAIN – AVALANCHE

Back in 2011, Madlib and MF Doom dropped “Avalanche” on the Stones Throw podcast that had hip hop heads searching all over for the full song. Five years later, the full song has surfaced and is available for purchase on 7″ vinyl with a 8″ figurine over at Rappcats. But you can enjoy the song now.
