Madlib and MF Doom - Madvillain (2004)

At a time when hip-hop in many ways has made a mockery of itself, and when its premier acts are neither creative nor conscious, MF Doom and Madlib have delivered an undisputed classic. Madvillainy is a rare hip-hop "concept" album filled with frenetic beats and rhymes that are both avant garde and street-level at the same time. It is amazing to hear their reinvention of the beat and rhyme on tracks like "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Figaro," "Accordion," and the instant classic "All Caps." Many of the tracks are short, and the interludes sometimes make little sense. It is telling that many of the artists leading a revolution within hip-hop are its elders, like De La Soul, Common, and (hopefully) Digable Planets and A Tribe Called Quest. Madvillain sports 2 prolific veterans of the rap game who have managed to make hip-hop challenging and relevant again. In my humble opinion, Madvillainy is the most important hip-hop album of the last decade and one of the best albums of the last few years, period. Pick it up. --Amazon User Review
