Monk Hughes & The Outer Realm: A Tribute To Brother Weldon
In 2002 jazz legend Weldon Irvine Jr. passed away and as a reaction the super-producer Madlib entered the studio under a new moniker Monk Hughes. What came out of the musical womb is Monk Hughes & Outer Realms Tribute To Brother Weldon that served as a tribute to Irvine's illustrious career. Two years after its creation Stonesthrow is releasing this LP (on the coattails of a Stevie Wonder tribute) for your commercial pleasure. The album's 12 tracks are all instrumentals that are inspired by Weldon, ones which were sampled on hip-hop classics by BDP ("My Philosophy") and ATCQ ("Award Tour").
