Stones Throw stalwarts MED and Madlib are again joining forces for the former’s forthcoming new album, Classic. Madlib produced 10 of the records’s 14 tracks while the others are handled by Oh No, the Alchemist, Karriem Riggins, and Georgia Anne Muldrow. And on the album’s latest single, “Outta Control,” Madlib is at the helm with tribal drums and whooping Redman vocal samples. Sounds appropriate given the track title, right? It is. And the beat perfectly suits the still-chill, albeit slightly fired up, vocals of MED and his guest Hodgy Beats, of Odd Future. It’s quite the surprise to see Hodgy appearing on a track outside of his close-knit circle, but we’re certainly not complaining. Someone at Stones Throw just needs to get him on the second Madvillain album. Stat.
