Comment: This remix of the album track is so sick. First time I heard it I didn't think it was Dilla production, and even now, though i'm a huge fan of his - loved Ruff Draft/Fantastic/Dohnuts and Jalib - this one just doesn't sound like him - but whatever, the song is bad ass anyhow.

Summary: Bonkers
Comment: Yo Jaydilla did his thing. This is the sickest beat on the album. Madlib should of came harder because with a beat like this he could have shown his true skill and murder it. But he just studders and says dumb sh*t. When I first heard the beat I wanted to get the instrumental and flow. All on all phat track, phat album.

Summary: Another Firey Track...
Comment: Definitely proving that Jaylib are forces to reckoned with. Jay Dee brings a heavenly vocal sampled beat that bangs west coast, while Madlib, with Quas at flank, drop some rhymes trading off and on. The rhymes are nice and clean, nothing too dope, but just enough to hold this dope 12" over.

Comment: Damn, Dilla is one of the best producers out there and his diversity is seen on “The Red,” which features a west coast type of bassline and totally thugged out bo-nananess. Yo, you have to love the bitches singing the hook here, just pure genius. Although I’m not positive as to what Lib and his alter-ego Quasimoto are spittin’ on, but it definitely on some girly stuff (“The Red,” I don’t even want to get into that). This track is a vocal trip for sure so I suggest that you drop your maxi pads and buy this 12”.

Summary: Nice!!!
Comment: Wow, this production is hot. Jay Dee did his thing on this one, definitely worth checking out. This beat is probably my favorite of his that is out right now, but the lyrics could use some work.

Summary: Get Insurance For Your Neck
Comment: I urge all listeners of this track to prepare themselves for a few neck pains from intense head nodding. Jay Dee's offering for the collaborative project with fellow beatsmith/MC, Madlib, Jaylib, is a good representation of Jay Dee's typically soulful, groovy work. The shocker is hearing Madlib in an element many fans of the Tascam Villain may not take to. This could easily be considered a radio-friendly song if it had a more noticeable chorus and even with the anemic chorus intact, it should be a hit on any a dancefloor. Having this on vinyl should be both a DJ's goal and mission. Madlib, like Jay Dee, isn't Rakim Allah on the mic but he does a highly serviceable job. He keeps you interested to say the least. It's a sure shot single.

Summary: It's Officially Official!
Comment: The lead-off single for the impending collaborative project between super-producers Madlib and Jaydee, Jaylib, has been one of underground hip-hop's most anticipated releases. Due to heavy bootlegging of a Madlib demo CD incorrectly considered the Jaylib project, delays are sure to be in effect. In the meantime Oxnard, California native Madlib blesses the Detroit baller Jay Dee with a soulful and dusty head-nodder oddly reminiscent of Jay Dee's signature head swinging and ass-shaking sound - albeit a bit more loop-heavy. Jay Dee isn't lighting up the world lyrically but he has an incredible sense of timing and rhythm. He fits perfect with the aptly named song. It's official, people. Let's hope the LP lives up to the hype.
