Madlib Discusses Sun Ra, Tha Alkaholiks, & J Dilla In Rare Interview (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Madlib does not get in front of the camera often, so it is a rare treat when he does. The producer responsible for tracks with Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, and Blu sat down with Radio France’s Laura Leishman to chat about music and more.

During the interview, the DJ/producer/emcee looks through a massive vinyl collection and shares his thoughts on some of the records and artists that have influenced him like Sun Ra, Tha Alkaholiks, Melvin Van Peebles, and J Dilla.

“He was the funkiest,” says Madlib about Dilla. “Every producer bows down to Dilla whether the like it or not, because everybody took something from him like Coltrane. That’s why I call him the ‘Coltrane of Hip Hop’.”
