Madvillain is Villanous in ‘All Caps’ Video

Posted: 09 Nov 2009 08:46 PM PST

There’s two things I love most about Madvillain, MF DOOM and Madlib.  A force to be reckoned with this duo has been turning up on my playlist time and time again since 2004, the date they released Madvillainy. This gem of a record has some of the best samples and lyrics that you’ll actually stop to listen to. Madlib’s beats hook you in while MF’s lyricism is highly hypnotic. Some call MF’s style lazy but I think he kills it. No matter how slow and burnt out he sounds his rhymes always drop on point. 

What I love even more is their ‘All Caps’ vid. It’s a visual depiction of what Madvillainy is all about: all things epic. Grab some popcorn and curl up on the couch and prepare yourself for some classic, action packed, toons.
