CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The 405

It holds together remarkably well, never once feeling disjointed.

Tiny Mix Tapes

The result is a shockingly cohesive and thoroughly complex record that more than compensates for its relatively brief runtime.

Pitchfork

This isn't the new Quas album people might've hoped for, but as someone who values the obscure and underheard in other peoples' work, it's good to know Madlib has the same context, respect, and enthusiasm for his own vaults, too.

AllMusic

Don't start here, but material-starved fans who have devoured earlier efforts will welcome this like a bag of scraggly "get-by" weed found during a drought.

PopMatters

At its core, Yessir Whatever is an album of mellow, banging beats that follow a fairly simplistic Madlib pattern. At the same time, it’s incredibly unique if you can adjust to the quirkiness of Quasimoto’s high-pitched voice. Yessir Whatever captures a classic hip-hop sound, yet feels futuristic.

This thing has the freshness of the "The Unseen" project but in a more compact way. Madlib shows a repertoire of interesting and fun instrumentals, while showing how to maintain Quasimoto's unique way of living and thinking. Nice front to back, short experience but has a great replay value.

Probably his weakest record to date, yet still abstract and an overall feel good album.

To quote Lord Quas "Yessir, whatever is a compilation of 12 tracks made over a period of 12 years" by Madlib and his alter-ego Quaimoto aka Lord Quas. That is why it's cohesive feel is an achievement in itself because I doubt it was intended to be, but there is no doubt the mellow vibe that it creates and the esoteric obscurity of it's content is undoubtedly signature, Madlib. An engaging listen nonetheless.
NR
For a compilation, Lord Quas delivers once again.
