On a new episode of Sway in the Morning, Madlib sat down for a rare broadcast interview. He revealed at one point that he is working on a new album of music featuring the late Mac Miller, noting that he has the estate’s blessing for the album’s release. He mentioned the album years ago following Miller’s death, but told Sway that he’s “finishing” it now. Miller’s estate offered no comment at this time. Watch Madlib talk about the new album below.
He also told Sway that he’s working on a new Erykah Badu album. In 2021, Madlib released the album Sound Ancestors in collaboration with Four Tet. More recently, he’s worked on tracks by Maxo, Open Mike Eagle, Fly Anakin, Black Star, Logic, and more.
