Strong Arm Steady, 'In Search of Stoney Jackson' (Stones Throw)

7
In Search of Stoney Jackson
Critical Mass
Label: Stones Throw

by Mosi Reeves

Between his psychedelically twisted beat tapes and quirky collaborations, Madlib occasionally reminds us that he's not only a stoned production genius, but a ranking member of Southern California's sprawling street-rap scene. With Strong Arm Steady's MC trio of Krondon, Phil Da Agony, and Mitchy Slick (plus extended fam like Planet Asia, Phonte, and Fashawn) dropping lyrical barbs ("Telegram") and creatively reheated thug-isms ("Needle in the Haystack"), Madlib chops up loops bubbling with quirky humor and analog soul.
