During a recent trip to Paris, prolific multi-instrumentalist, rapper and producer Madlib went on a crate-digging escapade at Radio France’s record library. Madlib and radio presenter Laura Leishman rummaged through the library’s vast collection, playing music from jazz greats such as Nathan Davis and Sun Ra alongside Madlib’s previous collaborations under The Alkaholiks and Quasimoto. The short clip unveils the Stones Throw artist’s taste for French composers, while also explaining — via a listen to “Phat Kat and “Shake It Down” — just why J Dilla is one of the “funkiest” producers ever.
