NO, NOT THAT JACKSON!



Some people call him Otis Jackson, but most know him as Madlib The Bad Kid (for all of you Lootpack fans). He's a living legend in the game as far as I am concerned, and well respected by his peers and fans alike. The dopest thing about Madlib is that he's an anomaly in the music game. He has his hands in a little bit of everything. The man does what he wants when he wants. As soon as you've thought his accomplished just about everything a musician can do, he comes with another fresh idea for the masses. Madlib is back with his latest project under the Jackson Conti alias entitled "Sujinho," which I think means shake your rear in Spanish? The album is hot if you are into the flavor of latin music. Madlib has done several side projects over his career, but this definitely is one of my favorites. I've had this joint on rewind for several days now, and I'm still not bored with it yet! The rhythms and beats are addictive, so I can't seem to stop listening to it. You just might feel the same too when you put ears on it as well...

Madlib + Conti!! A nice combination. "sujo" is a Portuguese word and stands for "dirty", "not clean". "sujinho" is a diminutive. When Brazilian people want to say "a little dirty", they say "sujinho". Here the word "dirty" has a positive vibe. If the album is "sujinho", then it means it is "not clean".

@Leandro - Good look on the explanation of the album title! I knew one of my readers would come to the rescue and plant the true definition on me...LOL!

Thanks for coming thru...

you can't beat that. i've been sitting on this cd for a minute now with no one to discuss it with. yay! lol i saw a video of the making of this cd, which sent me on a heavy cd hunt since atlanta pretty much sucks when it comes to independent/underground music. it's definitely a must have for madlib fans. shoot, music fans in general. matter of fact, i'll pop it in the cd player tomorrow...

@Kurt - I try to keep my Madlib knowledge updated as much as possible because he does so much stuff. When I found out about this joint, I knew I needed it in my collection. I'm glad other folks are aware of this gem as well.

Talk about the hardest working man in the music bidness...LOL
