Madlib and MF Doom fans have been impatiently waiting for the follow-up to Madvilliany to drop, and considering it’s been over a decade since that record, they’re totally justified. In the meantime, though, Doom and Madlib have steadily released a series of one-off tracks — both alone and together — that often featuring other people as well. For instance, today’s latest song “Knock Knock” is off Bad Neighbor, a smattering of beats that Stones Throw MC MED (Medaphoar) and LA rapper Blu have requisitioned for their own use. The song flips familiar funk and disco grooves into a sinuous backdrop for Doom, Blu, and MED to deliver verses in broad strokes. Listen below.
Bad Neighbor is out 10/30 via Rappcats. Pre-order it here.
