MED, Blu and Madlib… it’s got a nice ring to it doesn’t it? It’s been more than two years since we got a taste of this combination with The Burgundy EP and now the trio have released a full album together titled Bad Neighbor.
I’ve been a big fan of all three of these cats for quite some time but to be honest it’s been a while since I’ve been excited by any releases from Madlib or Blu. This is a different story though with Madlib showing that he’s still one of the most creative with the beats, laying the foundation for Blu to show just how good he can be. As for MED, he’s always on point in my books and this is no exception. And to top it off, the album features the likes of Dam-Funk, Oh No, Frank Nitt, MF DOOM, Anderson Paak, Phonte, Jimetta Rose, Aloe Blacc, and Mayer Hawthorne among others. Enough said. This is one of the best hip hop albums of 2015. Get a digital copy here or pre-order the vinyl from Rapcats.
