After Stones Throw placed one of these recordings on a mixtape (under the name Jaylib), and J Dilla caught ear of this, the full collaboration began to blossom. The pair recorded their debut album, Champion Sound, in separate cities (Madlib in L.A., and Dilla in Detroit) while sending beats back and forth. The greatly anticipated album was eventually released in 2003 after much delay (due to leaks and bootlegs) and received positive reviews.
With Dilla’s passing in 2006, Stones Throw released a deluxe version of Champion Sound in 2007. It includes a second CD of Madlib remixes.
