CD BOOKLET INSERT 16 1 2 605x300 Stones Throw x Madvillain Madvillainy 2 Box Set Comic Special Madvillainy 2 Madvillain Madlib jeff jank comic book

Seeing that our friends at The Citrus Report spend their Mondays featuring all that is good with Madlib and his universe, we can’t believe they missed the new Madvillainy 2 box set featuring this incredible 12-page mini-comic. As Jeff Jank told Juxtapoz this morning, “comic was done by James Reitano who did the Madvillain “ALL CAPS” video. The concept here was to continue the next episode where the CAPS video left off cliff-hanger style. We went all out with ’70s-80s comic book details, a letters page with a real letter, 8 track tapes, etc. The album itself is Madlib’s personal version of the album. The LP comes with 2 records, the comic, and digi download card.”

Jason Jagel did the illustration for this epic MF Doom box set, which makes us want it even more. According to Stones Throw, “Doom’s ‘Operation Doomsday’ reissue, this set contains a 7 inch picture disc as well as a puzzle of the front image to construct while listening to the instrumental version of ‘Rhymes like Dimes’.”

Madlib Mondays: Jaylib “The Heist” (New Video!)

Jaylib – “The Heist” from Rory Gamble on Vimeo.

We love when people take an old track and apply new visuals to it, and someone took the massively great Jaylib track, “The Heist,” and gave it a whole new video. This was for a Stones Throw contest, with the directors saying “We realize this song was released prior to the Donuts material but we had a hard time singling out any one song. We also wanted to see “The Heist” come to life with its great lyrics and potential for visual representation. So we apologize for any offense taken from mixing the two concepts. We just thought it was a cool way to have a donut MC. Hope you enjoy!”

Operation Doomsday crop Jason Jagel does MF Doom art for Operation: Doomsday Deluxe Reissue Stones Throw reissue operation doomsday MF doom Jason Jagel deluxe

FIFTY24SF alumnist, San Francisco artist Jason Jagel, has a bunch of his work on the subject of MF Doom being released with Stones Throw for the reissue of the 1999 cult classic, Operation:Doomsday.

Here is what you are going to get on June 21, 2011, when this reissue drops..

MF DOOM’s debut album OPERATION: DOOMSDAY was originally released in 1999. It has seen at least two different versions on different labels, gone in and out of print, bootlegged, and even released once with a cheap scan of the original cover. This is the first complete & remastered version of OPERATION: DOOMSDAY, containing the original album, alternate versions, b-sides and instrumentals – 42 tracks total – with all new artwork.

Following the CD/Lunchbox release and digital release, we held off announcing the vinyl until we were able to absolutely confirm a release date: June 21, 2011. This is a release of Metalface Records. Artwork by Jason Jagel, art direction by Jeff Jank.

Vinyl Box Set Contains:
4 RECORDS : The album, the instrumentals, b-sides, alternate versions. Tin box with four records protected by paper dividers and cushioned inner box.
LYRIC BOOK : In large 7

Madlib Mondays: Madvillain “Monkey Suite”

2d4716be5e8b0c5eaa365e4c46207211 Madlib Mondays: Madvillain Monkey Suite Stones Throw monkey suite MF doom Madvillain madlib mondays Madlib chrome children vol 1

This has always been one of our favorite tracks from the Madvillain project, with “Monkey Suite” ending up on Stones Throw’s Chrome Children Vol 1 compilation in 2006. As rumors abound that Madlib and MF Doom are getting the band back together soon, this is a nice reminder of why we should care.
