For 20 years, Otis Jackson Jr., aka Madlib, has been crafting underground hip hop classics under the guise of countless monikers. Raised in a large family by parents who instilled an insatiable appetite for composing, experimenting and absorbing influences through their own musical careers, he has simultaneously progressed, fashioned and expanded the genres of hip hop and rap music, while developing his own styles in the process.

Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.
