Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix Box Set

Madvillain - Madvillainy Album CoverOne of my favorite rap albums of all time is the 2004 release Madvillainy by Madvillain, a.k.a. indie rapper MF Doom and producer Madlib. I liked the album so much I even bought the Kidrobot vinyl figure. I had almost given up hope on the long rumored follow up album and then last week their label, Stones Throw, announced the release of the exclusive Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix Box Set.

Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix is a “reworking” of the original by Madlib, lacing Doom’s original verses over all new beats. The Madvillainy 2: The Box, while expensive at $125.00 plus shipping, is loaded with extras including the 25 track Madvillainy 2 cd, a “One Beer (Drunk Version)” 7-inch vinyl single, an actual cassette with The Madvillainy Demo Tape on it, a t-shirt and a comic book continuing the story from the “All Caps” Madvillain music video. The Box might be expensive, but you definitely get more than your money’s worth of Madvillain items.

If you’re at all interested in Madvillainy 2: The Box don’t sleep on its pre-order because they are manufacturing the box set based on pre-orders, so if you don’t get in on it early you might not get one at all. You can pre-order The Box at Stones Throw’s new online store now until August 15th, and you can expect the Madvillainy 2: The Box to ship on September 15th.

For those of you dying to hear the new Madvillain tracks, but not interesting in shelling out $125 for The Box, there is another options. For $9.99 you can purchase just the Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix digital album directly from Stones Throw. The digital album is available now and can be purchased here.
