DON’T SLEEP: M.E.D. “Blaxican” (prod. by Madlib) [VIDEO]

“Blaxican” is the next offering from what is shaking out to be one of the best albums of 2011, M.E.D.’s “Classic”. The Madlib produced jawn addresses the Black/Mexican strife that exists and sometimes leads to senseless violence in California and elsewhere. As a Blacktino I’m saddened that these things still occur today. Don’t sleep…

Here’s a video ESTA recently uploaded that breaks down his beat creation process. Apparently he uses GarageBand and adds on with synths and keyboards to make his slaps extra funky and whatnot. I typically use GarageBand to make ringtones. More evidence that ESTA is better than you at beatmaking? I’ve added three new slaps from his SoundCloud page called “Gold”, TRAPMUZIK” and “YouTube Beat” to this post so the entire batmaking process video has a proper context. DON’T SLEEP!
