Madvillainy is a studio album by American hip hop duo Madvillain, originally released in March 2004 via Stones Throw Records.

Madvillain was an American hip hop duo consisting of two MCs and producers, MF Doom and Madlib.

Here's how it happened, Madlib wanted to record with Doom. We found the guy, brought him out to the house in the east Los Angeles hills where Stones Throw was based at the time. Most of the tracks were written and recorded there, Madlib making beats in a former bomb shelter downstairs, Doom writing on the back porch and recording in a bedroom.

"Meat Grinder" and "Figaro" were made in the first couple days - songs lit, in the booth, with the best host / Doing bong hits on the roof out in the west coast.

Madlib and Egon were in Brazil after the first round of tracks were put together, which Madlib bought to listen to on a CD-R. He made a few more beats out there which would end up on the album, using a portable record player, an SP 303 and a borrowed cassette deck.

Meanwhile, some sad-sack jackass burned a copy of the demo and decided to post it on the internet - wasn't even tweaked and it leaked into cyberspace / couldn't wait for the snipes to place / at least a track list in bold print type face.

Declaring the album "already out," the artists more or less gave up on the record and it took months to bring them back to the project.

Verse 2 of "Rhinestone Cowboy" was written and recorded over 6 months after the first verse. Sometimes he rhyme quick, sometimes he rhyme slow, or vice versa / Whip up a slice of nice verse pie, hit it on the first try.

Be weary of the "first try" claim - Doom tweaked and perfected his lyrics and delivery several times through late 2003.

Madvillainy with no hooks and dirty beats was released March 23, 2004, Exec produced by PB Wolf, Design by Jeff Jank, Mastered by Dave Cooley, Photos by Eric Coleman, James Reitano made a badass video. 10 years later we're all patiently waiting for the next record.

While Madvillainy achieved only moderate commercial success, it became one of the best-selling Stones Throw albums. It peaked at #179 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, and attracted attention from media outlets not usually covering hip hop music, including The New Yorker.

Madvillainy received widespread critical acclaim for Madlib's production and MF Doom's lyricism, and is regarded as Doom's magnum opus.

It has ranked in various publications' lists of all-time greatest albums, including at 411 on NME's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and at 365 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2021 reissue on black vinyl housed in a single pocket sleeve, pressed in the US via Stones Throw Records.
