170: “Dominant” by Beatless with Quasimoto, Madlib
March 21, 2011 Leave a comment
Quasimoto, aka Lord Quas, is Madlib‘s alter ego, his own voice sped up. Madlib can say things as Quas he might not say as himself, which is good, because rappers are very timid and inhibited by nature. He uses hip-hop ventriloquism to overcome his inhibitions.
Beatless, the duo backing Quas/Madlib, were unfortunately named for search engine optimization… one letter different from “Beatles” confuses music searches. They luckily possessed a stanky hook manufacturing license for their 2001 release of Life Mirrors.
I dare you to argue with me in the comments that this song isn’t worth repeated listens. But I must warn you, I know how to speak doofus.
