"Madlib follows Beat Konducta In Africa, with the fourth installment of the Medicine Show series, 420 Chalice All Stars. Anyone familiar with Madlib knows of his deep appreciation of the variety of musical styles to originate from the Caribbean island nation of Jamaica. His run through of the Trojan Records catalog, 2004's Blunted In The Bombshelter, served as an interesting amuse-bouche. Now, the entrée -- or at least the first course: 420 Chalice All Stars. Madlib doesn't limit himself to one style in this overflowing platter: all Jamaican flavors are evident, from the speedy ska of the mid '60s to the dark dub of the early '70s to the rollicking funk from some of Jamaica's best known ensembles. The Madlib Medicine Show series is a combination of Madlib's new hip-hop productions, remixes, beat tapes, and jazz, as well as mixtapes of funk, soul, Brazilian, psych, jazz and other undefined forms of music from the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl."
