We are huge fans of all the art direction at hip-hop label, Stones Throw, and we are huge fans of all the musical identities of one super-producer, Madlib. Stones Throw and Madlib have just released a very special Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix box set, featuring a double LP with printed cover, MP3 download card, and, here is what we are excited about, a 12-page mini-comic.
As Jeff Jank of Stones Throw told us this morning, the "comic was done by James Reitano who did the Madvillain "ALL CAPS" video. The concept here was to continue the next episode where the CAPS video left off cliff-hanger style. We went all out with '70s-80s comic book details, a letters page with a real letter, 8 track tapes, etc. The album itself is Madlib's personal version of the album. The LP comes with 2 records, the comic, and digi download card."
Buy it all here. Worth it, in every way.
