    Along with the massive catalog under his primary pseudonym, rapper-producer Otis Jackson Jr. (AKA the iconic Madlib) has intermittently recorded as Quasimoto. In June, he’ll return to that high-pitched alter ego for the first time in eight years with the release of a career-spanning compilation titled Yessir Whatever.

    The collection features 12 rare, out-of-print, and previously unreleased tracks, plus a bonus 45 featuring “Hittin Hooks” and “Microphone Mathematics Remix”. Among the cuts dug up from the archives is “Planned Attack”, a slice of pure and simple old-school rap intensity composed of wicked scratching, a warped jazz sample, and straight-to-your-dome rhymes (“Making the rap game look pitiful/If it was up to me we’ get rid of y’all/Put a lid on y’all fake ass n***as contradicting”). Listen in below.
