Produced by Madlib. 12 tracks recorded over a roughly 12-year period. LP & CD come with a peel-off cover sticker revealing Quasimoto's guts; LP with bonus 7-inch single.
Quasimoto first came to life on Madlib's personal beat tapes in the producer's early years in Oxnard CA – private music, not meant for release, made for himself and a small circle of local smokers and their car stereos.
By the time of Quasimoto's debut The Unseen, most had caught on to the fact that Madlib and Quasimoto were one in the same. The MC as artistic alter ego, like a talking dummy from surreal rap vaudeville. Quasimoto is usually the “bad character,” doing and saying what the producer doesn’t, with Madlib along side as a noncommittal collaborator. The Unseen (Stones Throw, 2000) was among the new decade's first sleeper hits, ranking on Spin’s year end list at a time when the producer and label were unknown outside hip-hop DJ circles.
After a subsequent journey through jazz production and now-legendary collaborations with MF DOOM & J Dilla, Madlib called on Quasimoto again for The Further Adventures of Lord Quas. The album played something like a smoked-out comedy/crime Blaxploitation flick, and continued to build Madlib's reputation as one of the most creative and fearlessly skewed creators in hip-hop.
As for Quasimoto – usually represented by pen & ink with brick in hand – he has been many things over the years: rapper, cartoon, the poor-man's Gorillaz, a toy, bad tattoo, internet meme. To all this Lord Quas might say, yessir … whatever. It’s all about the music.
Yessir Whatever collects 12-tracks made by Madlib and Quasimoto over a roughly 12-year period. A few were released on rare & out-of-print vinyl, while a few others are previously unreleased, now mixed and mastered for the first time. Take two & pass. Yessir … whatever.
DJ YRS Jerzy and Chox-Mak have on their grind dropping numerous tracks with different producers. This track is alot different from all the other tracks they have dropped. It has a Detroit based trap sound that was brought by Lex Gunna a on the rise producer who is also managed by DJ YRS Jerzy.
I would like to submit my latest record to your website entitled, "Power," f. Rashid Hadee [@RashidHadee] & produced by Slot-A [@iamslota]. This record serves as a promo (not featured on the album) for my upcoming album, "Paura/Amore."

Directed by Miami's hottest up an coming director Robert Smith. This is a story about missing one's significant other due to work related issues. He wishes she didn't have to go. However he realizes its just a part of her career and has to accept that. Although he is willing to do so, he still must fight the inner battle within himself. Reason being .. because when you love someone you never want to see them go... Even if its just for the weekend!!
