In 2003, MF Doom traveled back in time to don his Vik Vaughn persona and pen this classic album. "Vaudeville Villain: Gold Edition" is now available in 2xCD format! Contains a bonus gold-colored CD with all the rare instrumentals and accapellas from the vinyl edition and more.
Legendary MC MF Doom opened up a lyrical wormhole which resulted in this now classic LP - re-released in a limited, hand numbered, Gold Edition! Includes a bonus gold-colored LP with instrumentals and accapellas, including the rare "Saliva" instrumental produced by RJD2. The original artwork comes in a gold colorway, and also includes two tracks only previously released on the CD version of the album - Open Mic Night and Change the Beat. The set comes packaged in a thick clear plastic jacket.
Vaudeville Villain is a concept album evoking plenty of high comedy, street technology, and hijinks. Next-school beats by King Honey, Heat Sensor, and Max Bill move freely in the spaces between electronica and hiphop. Take a trip back to the origin of the Super Villain. An unanticipated time travel machine breakdown left Vik stuck in the early 90's where he has no choice but to battle sucka MCs and carry out side-hustles so he can repair the time machine and go back to the future.
Fresh off steady touring with and producing for (along with Trent Reznor) Saul Williams, CX got busy with some reel to reel and betamax snippets to craft this long-awaited visual accompaniment to the underground lightning storm known as Big Girl Skinny Girl. This, my friends, is the dirty version.
