Madvillainy 2: The Box

Some might say its sacrilege to revisit a classic album like Madvillainy. You know, like George Lucas messing around with Star Wars and digitally inserting Jabba The Hut rapping with Han Solo. But Madlib’s never been one to respect convention - and he made this one for headphone listening while on a ten-hour plane ride to Tokyo. But this reworking (we hate to say remix) was so good that, after we sat with it for a while, we decided that we had to make it available.

Yeah, we’re waiting for the new Madvillain too. Every once in a while we hear from DOOM, and he tells us he’s getting closer. Madlib still sends him beat CDs. DOOM always remembers our birthdays. But, we don’t have the sequel, and we know every nuance of Madvillainy. So we’ve been bumping this album while we’re patiently waiting. And it’s been good. Like visiting with a friend who you haven’t seen in years and remembering why you were friends to begin with.

So now you get a chance to get in on it too.

This album will only be available through our website - we just launched our own store. You know, cut out the middleman, fuck the establishment.... That type of vibe. So here we are, saying: “We’ve got something special. And we’re going to sell it to you in a big ass box full of cool ass shit that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.”

We’re manufacturing based on pre-orders. If you order it, you’re guaranteed to get one. If you decide to wait, well, you might not. These things are difficult and expensive to make. That’s why we’re selling them for a lot of money. And you’ve noticed the ship date right? They’re going to take a while to manufacture. So you’ll have to wait a little while. We’ll do everything we can to beat that ship date, but that’s a guaranteed date. If we don’t ship on September 15th, Peanut Butter Wolf will DJ at your house for you. Any day except Tuesday.

you can buy the MP3's on the stones throw mp3 store now!


How the fuck am I only hearing this now.

So Jay-Z is having Timbaland produce his entire next album. Im kinda worried it wont have the big band, 60s vibe in it like Blueprint and American Gangster

Operation Doomsday definitely. also MM..Food and Vaudeville Villain are good.

Danger Doom could be right up your alley though, since it's entirely produced by Danger Mouse (i know you like the Gorillaz)

i really liked it when i first bought it, but it rarely gets listened to anymore. the amount of skits at the end and beginning of songs becomes a bit tedious.

i still like "The Mask" alot though. then again, i like pretty much anything with Ghostface on it.

So basically, while I was on vacation I developed an intense new passion for hip-hop. Within the course of 3 weeks, I bought 2 Roots albums, a Common album, a De La Soul album, Mos Def and Talib Kweli's Black Star, A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory and Guru's Jazzmatazz.
lol, I'm fucking obsessed.

FUCK YES! Black Star is my favorite hip hop album of all time and one of my favorite albums period.

Both Talib and Mos Def were on some next-level shit when that came out.

"consider me the entity within the industry without a history of spitting the epitome of stupidity"

edit: "Definition" and "RE: Definition" are the 2nd and 3rd most played songs on my itunes.

i love a lot of both of their music, but nothing is up to the level of Black Star. Mos' Black On Both Sides and Talib's Reflection Eternal are also great, but nothing compares.

i listen to Quality from time to time, but i think Black Star is 5x as good.
