*UPDATE 2: The official song and video (trailer?) are up for your listening pleasure. Give your ears some love.*
*UPDATE: It appears that the song’s been taken off of Soundcloud and Audiomack for the time being, but you can listen to a snippet on Rappcats’ site.
Madlib has been busy over at Rappcats, releasing more music than we know what to do with. Today, he’s waiting at the door with “Knock Knock,” a sultry groove of a collaboration featuring MED, Blu, and MF Doom.
The single is the first off of Bad Neighbor, the upcoming collab album between Madlib, MED, and Blu. According to Rappcats, Blu dug up some Madlib beats online, recorded over them, and hastily uploaded them to Soundcloud as “collaboration” before they were taken down hours later. The demos of these rough recordings were picked up by MED, who brought together the likes of Anderson .Paak, Hodgy Beats, Aloe Blacc, and Mayer Hawthorne to form what would become Bad Neighbor. The project drops on CD/digital October 30 and on double vinyl December 1. Pre-order here. Don’t sleep.
