I’m listening to Madvillain as I post this. I remember why I stopped listening to hip hop around the time this album dropped. You can’t get it much better than this.
"Today is the shadow of tomorrow. Today is the present future of yesterday. Yesterday is the shadow of today. The darkness of the past is yesterday. The light of the past is yesterday. The days of the past are all numbered and summed. And once upon a time there was a yesterday … at least by tomorrow there will be, anyway." - Madlib (Madvillain - from the track "Shadows of Tomorrow.")
