Madlib Casts Doubt On ‘Madvillainy’ Sequel

"I feel it probably won't happen..."

Madlib has given a new interview casting doubt on the possibility of a 'Madvillainy' sequel.

Released in 2004, 'Madvillainy' saw two of hip hop's most potent talents cross swords. Madlib concocted a dense array of beats, often using quite obtuse samples to craft a layered, eclectic bedrock.

DOOM (or MF DOOM as he was known then) turned in one of his finest studio performances, one which touched on cinema, literature and brutal street knowledge.

A sequel has been mooted for some time – indeed, DOOM told Clash as much in this 2009 interview – but the results have been slow in forthcoming.

Now in a fresh interview, Madlib has cast doubt on the results ever seeing the light of day. "I feel it probably won't happen,"the producer told Rolling Stone, "but you never know. I can't sit and wait on that. I did my part."

Continuing, Madlib said: "I handed all the beats to Doom years ago, but ever since he's been in Europe, he's been hard to get a hold of."

Come on DOOM… if you're reading this then drop the man an email.
