As pretty much everyone knows, MF Doom and DJ Danger Mouse are finishing up an album (as Danger Doom) called “The Mouse and the Mask.” Doom’s been putting out awesome stuff since KMD (“Sweet Premium Wine” will be played at my funeral) and, even though Danger Mouse didn’t achieve his current level of fame until the Grey Album was everywhere, he’s been awesome since forever. What’s not to like about a collaboration?

Well, on this one, they’re using a lot of sound clips from Adult Swim (ok) but they’re being recorded specially for the record (buh?). Yep- that means that you’re going to hear Space Ghost say things like (and this is a direct quote): “You think I’m just going to hand over my show to you, Doom? Have you lost your fucking mind? Yeah, sure, here are the keys to the show. Why don’t you drive for a while?”

Something about having recognizeable cartoon voices actually interact with the MCs feels too gimmicky. If I want Adult Swim-related rap, I’ll go to MC Chris (the voice of MC Pee Pants, among others) every time.

Anyway, if you liked anything Doom or Danger Mouse have done before, you’ll like this one.

Danger Doom – “Mincemeat” (MP3 Link Removed)

I’m a lot more interested in Gnarls Barkley, Danger Mouse’s collaboration with Cee-Lo, but the web site has nothing but an image on it, even though the album’s supposed to be done. Does anyone have any mp3s? Update: You guys rock. Thanks!

(Can I commission a rap/TSOP mashup called MFSB Doom?)

    yeah this leaked 3 months ago.

    Here’s a quick snippet from Gnarls. There was a longer sampler available for a brief time on the website.

  3. i posted two of the tracks from the upcoming album on my blog awhile back, including the one featuring Cee-Lo.

    here’s the link:

  4. I found the Danger Mouse/Jemini collaboration at Best Buy (buried among the usual crap) and it has stayed in rotation in my CD player ever since. It’s one of the few hip-hop CDs I own (like, 3). I guess “Danger Doom” is gonna be my fourth.

  5. This leak is so old…. I’m already listening to his new leak the ghostface collaboration: Operation Ironman… Mince meat really isn’t that good, but sofa king, the mask, crosshairs, and space ho’s make dangerdoom worth getting.

  6. on a side note about new releases, anyone pick up the new Broken Social Scene or My Morning Jacket today?

    come on, Shake’s voice messages are hilarious.

    new My Morning Jacket is out of this world. Anyone else think tracks 4 and 7 sound a little flaming lips-ish? (in the best way possible) or am i out of my mind?

    yeah, i’ve thought that those two mmj songs sound like mid-90s flaming lips

  9. not to be a dick, but the name of the album’s The Mouse and The Mask

    c:

    Operation Ironman leaked???? any idea where I can get this? very excited for the ghostface/doom collab.

    I’ve been listening to this record for months as well. It’s no Madvilliany, but I won’t complain.

    And today I was told at my local record store that the Broken Social Scene record was put off to next week. Anyone heard anything about why?

    IF YOU HAVE IT, WHY AIN’T U SHARIN IT? i thought we blood!

    That’s weird, there were tons of copies of the BSS record here, all with the limited edition EP.

  14. Snappy  |   Posted on Oct 5th, 2005 0

    I’ve done some snooping, and it seems like Ontario doesn’t have the BSS record, but it seems like the US does. Something about a manufacturing delay.

    You’d figure they’d nail down the band’s hometown for opening day, but no CDs here till the 11th.

    Would luv to hear more – Operation Ironman, PLEASE!!!

    Supreme Clientel is one of my all time favs.

    I am the only one that finds Danger Mouse tired? The production in Mincemeat is soooo boring.

  17. gypsymazzurco  |   Posted on Oct 5th, 2005 0

    the whole dangerdoom album is now streaming at myspace:

    nice thanks.

  19. Duped! Not the leak of Operation Ironman. More like a mix of Doom and Ghostface’s greatest hits. Don’t believe the hype. Yo.

  20. Finally I’m cool enough to comment on something. I got the CD in the mail a few months ago (I get lots of Adult Swim schwag at work) and I like it. It’s kind of like the Gorillaz album, only minus the Damon Albarn influence and plus Adult Swim characters. I’ve been listening to it in the car a lot.

  21. Can someone hit me with that Gnarls Barkley?
