Karriem Riggins & Madlib are Jahari Masamba Unit

This is Karriem Riggins on Madlib’s fucked up drum set at the Loop Digga’s Hideaway. New album from Madlib & Karriem under the name Jahari Masamba Unit coming in 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

here is a small but relevant part from an older interview —-> LINK

How long have you been emceeing and were you at any point intimidated by it?

Karriem Riggins: I do so much it’s kind of hard to stay on one thing because I’m always doing everything. Common would be working on his album and I would come up with a chant or something, recently I started writing to whatever beat that inspires me and I got a lot of rhymes man (laughs). I met up with Madlib and he gave me 7 beat cd’s with 50 beats on each. So we decided to do that album together and we have five albums in the can. We have five jazz albums and we’re trying to finish the Supreme Team album. Madlib and I actually have a jazz group call the Jahari Masamba Unit and it’s coming out on Stones Throw.
