Madlib isn’t much of a talker, but he opened up in a new interview with Dazed. The producer/rapper/record collector spoke on Dilla, his love for music, being an alien, and when that next Madvillain album is coming out.
On the Madvillainy sequel with DOOM:
I’m about to go see him right after this and figure that out. I’m not forcing him to do it. He doesn’t even have to do it; I just want to know where we are at with it because we recorded like, 10, 13 songs, but out of those we probably only used 4, so I want to see how the recordings are going. It’s not close to finished because it has to be a continuation of the last one. It doesn’t have to be better or worse but it has to be a continuation.
On what’s going to happen to all his unreleased music when he dies:
I’m gonna burn it down before I die, a little Lee Perry action. Ain’t nobody exploiting my shit. If I was dying in hospital I’d tell my son to go and burn it. Don’t think I’m going to get exploited like they’re doing to Dilla. I’m learning from how he’s being treated from some people.
