Madvillain is a hip hop group consisting of MF DOOM (MC/producer) and Madlib (MC/producer). Their debut album Madvillainy was met with wide critical acclaim for its unique approach—short songs, obscure lyrics, few choruses and a sound which was generally unfriendly to commercial radio.

In 2006, Madvillain was featured on Stones Throw and Adult Swim's DVD/CD Chrome Children with a new song and live performance. Kidrobot followed this by announcing a Madvillain action figure.[1]

Madvillain's label Stones Throw has announced in 2009 that MF Doom and Madlib are currently working on a second Madvillain album.[2]

On May 26, 2010, Madvillain released the song "Papermill" via Adult Swim's website.[3]

On January 3, 2011, Madvillain released the song "Avalanche & Victory Lap" via Stones Throw mixtape.[4]
