Don't get me started on him dude. I listened to Madvillain one day my junior year of high school and it was over. He's the sole reason I started really following hip-hop at all, and at this point I know for a fact that there is no greater living legend in hiphop than Daniel fucking Dumile.
e- there's a Nardwuar interview somewhere of Earl losing his marbles talking about the first time he ever saw him. A couple months later, Between Villains came out.
