Editors’ Notes The first edition of Madlib's ambitious, 12 CD project (released one per month for the whole year of 2010), Before the Verdict is loaded with new music and never-before-heard remixes, pairing the eccentric and prolific Beat Konducta with Detroit MC and fellow Stones Throw artist Guilty Simpson, offering listeners a taste of their forthcoming OJ Simpson collaboration. Madlib's production is both reliably bugged out and totally unpredictable, blending elements of free jazz and hardcore hip-hop, heavily influenced by high caliber weed and notoriously deep crates (currently estimated at a hefty 4 tons). MED stops by for "The Exclusive," while the late great J Dilla appears on "Young Guns," but for the most part its all about Madlib and Guilty, who further prove themselves a seriously potent combination.
