Madlib works too much. When the enigmatic producer/DJ/rapper/whirlwind isn't collaborating with other artists (like producing hip-hop group Strong Arm Steady's latest release, In Search of Stoney Jackson, or working on Erykah Badu's upcoming New Amerykah sequel), he's just releasing stuff from his own hefty personal stash. Apparently, he has a lot of music to share, as evidenced by his latest endeavor, The Madlib Medicine Show, a 12-CD collection he'll be dropping monthly throughout the year. With the first two volumes already out, not to mention the man himself coming down here to perform, perhaps we shouldn't think of Madlib as a workaholic. Maybe he's just a brotha who loves to give.
