The Madvillainy remix album is back! Madvillainy 2 The Madlib Remix was previously only available as part of the Madvillainy 2 Boxset and a small batch of white label pressings (which flew out of the Lab with the quickness), but now it finally sees a proper reissue complete with full pic sleeve and comic book. The original Madvillain was one of the illest collabs of all time, with MF Doom arguably at his amoeba genius prime, mixed with the unpredictable stoned beat aesthetics of Madlib. For the remix, Madlib revisits the project and gives fresh beats to the classic collab effort (apparently he made it for personal headphone listening right before a 10 hour flight to Tokyo). Obviously dope! This double LP vinyl version also comes with a free digital download of the entire album. Recommended.
