Quasimoto - Planned Attack
Madlib is the king of abstract hip-hop instrumentals and flow. The music he makes with his alter ego Quasimoto is so unique in the hip-hop world that his songs like Am I Confused are in a genre of their own. This is my favorite song off of Madlib’s new album Yessir Whatever, which is set to be released June 18th.
“I’ll hit you with a slower fast pace. I’m a perceptional mode, new breed to wreck the whole space.”

“You know I got some dimes on layaway, and I be here freaking for the honeys that make you sway. Do me a favor, tell your girl that I ain’t in her bed just yet.”
Quasimoto - Am I Confused
This is one of my favorite songs off of Madlib’s new album Yessir Whatever, which is set to be released June 18th. Yessir Whatever is a collection of 12 tracks made by Madlib and his alter ego Quasimoto over a roughly 12 year period. It’s about to be a collectors item, just you watch. Am I Confused and all of the other odd songs on the album represent completely unique abstract hip-hop, which only a yellow brick slinging womanizer could create. Quasimoto’s music is in a genre of its own.

“I give a shit what you think of my life, hitting up every wife, cause we all up on strife.”
“Guess who’s the new bad character in town?
Causin’ mischief in your city, turn that shit around.”
Quasimoto - Come on Feet
Madlib is an undisputed king of abstract instrumentals and vocals. His alter ego Quasimoto is so unique in the hip-hop world that his songs like Come on Feet are in a genre of their own. Quasimoto to the hip-hop world is equivalent to what abstract paintings are to the art world. It’s extremely beautiful in a very chaotic, yet controlled and calculated manner. Every note has a specific purpose in filling the canvas with aesthetic beauty and meaning. Come On Feet is one of my favorite songs off of Madlib’s 2000 album The Unseen.
I realize most people don’t have an inherent appreciation for this kind of music. It’s not the kind of musical genre you can just jump into without hearing anything like it before and think, “holy shit this is amazing!” It’s like jumping into a pool of cold water. At first your senses don’t appreciate such an extreme environment; however, your body’s senses inherently adjust to the abnormalness, and after some time you can finally begin to enjoy and appreciate your environment. Obviously not all people are like this, just most.

“QUAS high like sky scrappers…gettin more ass than toilet paper”
Any woman sporting a Quasimoto tattoo is automatically much cooler than you and all your friends. So just keep that in mind.

“No matter what I do, I’m labeled as a bad character.”
“Dropping that ass like bad demos. And pulling all the cuties with no problemo. That’s right cause I’m a gamer. Your girl left you for me, Lord Quas, I don’t blame her.”
