Sights & Sounds: Madvillain’s “America’s Most Blunted”

    To me, Madvillain (MF DOOM and Madlib) is one of the best pairings in hip-hop history, almost up there with Jay and ‘Ye. And “America’s Most Blunted” from their classic 2004 album, Madvillainy, crystallizes everything the two represent: musically unpredictable, ganja-fueled lunacy. This is the novice’s starting point for learning about the group, showcasing Doom’s stoned-out flow and Madlib’s brilliant, left-field sampling. One member brings out the best qualities of the other. Indie rap at its peak.
