MF Doom And Danger Mouse Drop Unheard Track For Reissue Of Danger Doom’s ‘The Mouse And The Mask’

first_imgBack in 2005, rapper MF Doom (Daniel Dumile) and producer Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) teamed up for the collaborative album, The Mouse And The Mask, using the moniker Danger Doom. The classic hip-hop album was inspired by Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, and in addition to tracks featuring Ghostface Killah and Cee-Lo contains cameos throughout by characters from Aqua Team Hunger Force, Space Ghost, and other cartoons from the time. The album ended up flirting with mainstream success, eventually reaching #41 on the Billboard 200.Recently, MF Doom and Danger Mouse have announce a special reissue of the cartoon-tinged album via Doom’s label, Metalface Records, in May. The reissue will also contain two never-before-heard tracks from the recording session. One of these previously unreleased tracks just dropped along with the announcement, a song called “Mad Nice” that also features The Roots’ MC Black Thought. Littered with Vincent Price’s foreboding maniacal laugh, the track fits in with the cartoony vibes of The Mouse And The Mask, though is seemingly less extravagant than other songs off the album, instead choosing to emphasize the dialed-in verse dropped by Doom and Black Thought.You can take a listen to the decade-old “Mad Nice” for yourself below, and cop the special reissue of Danger Doom’s The Mouse And The Mask here.[H/T Pitchfork]last_img
