A Book About MF DOOM & Madlib’s ‘Madvillainy’ Album Is Coming
MUSIC - 2 WEEKS AGO

A book about MF Doom and Madlib’s 2004 album Madvillainy is being published by 33 1/3 Books.

The legacy of MF DOOM lives on in an upcoming book from the 33 1/3 series. On Tuesday (November 1), the book imprint and DOOM’s former record label Stones Throw Records, announced that a book centering DOOM and Madlib’s 2004 album Madvillainy will release next March. The album, which was executive produced by Madlib, was also an introduction to the Madvillain superduo.

Written by author and journalist Will Hagle, the 152-page book will feature interviews with people involved in the album’s creation, and will also be told from the perspective of three fake journalist superheroes. The official description for the book said it “blends fiction and non-fiction to celebrate Madvillainy not just as an album, but as a folkloric artifact. It is one specific retelling of a story which, like Madvillain’s music, continues to spawn infinite legends.”



MF DOOM died on October 31, 2020, although his wife Jasmine confirmed his death on December 31 of that year in an Instagram post. In a 2021 interview with NPR Music show Sound Ancestors, Madlib confirmed that he learned of DOOM’s death through social media when “everybody else did.”


“His family’s very private, so they probably didn’t know how to approach that one. I still can’t believe that he died. That’s weird,” he said.

To commerate the two-year anniversary of DOOM’s death, Jasmine penned a heartfelt message on Instagram on Monday, marking his transition as “DOOMSDAY.”

“It is tears of joy of having the pleasure to have been with the man whom many call DOOM, we call him Old Dad. You will always be missed,” Jasmine wrote.



Madvillainy 33 1/3 is available for preorder via Stones Throw Records.

Written by S.H. Fernando Jr, the upcoming biography The Chronicles of Doom: Unraveling Rap’s Masked Iconoclast will center the life MF DOOM.
Veteran journalist S.H. Fernando Jr will tell the tale of late rap giant MF DOOM in an upcoming biography. Titled The Chronicles of Doom: Unraveling Rap’s Masked Iconoclast, the Astra House book is “a sweeping and definitive biography” that will “recount the rise, fall, redemption and untimely demise of one of Hip Hop’s most enigmatic and influential figures.”


Fernando, who’s contributed to The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, and Vibe, published Wu-Tang Clan biography From the Streets of Shaolin: The Wu-Tang Saga last August, along with The New Beats: Exploring the Music, Culture & Attitudes of Hip-Hop in 1994.

Astra House senior editor shared that he Danny Vazquez “could not be more excited” to publish The Chronicles of Doom.


“’s story has been recounted endlessly on the internet. Amateur music historians have tried, and failed, time and time again, to tell his complete story,” he said. “S.H. Fernando is here to tell that story — from KMD to Adult Swim to the villain’s final chapter escaping death in the public eye for two whole months before it was announced in the most sensational fashion on New Year’s Eve 2020.”

MF DOOM died on October 31st, 2020, although his wife Jasmine confirmed his death on December 31st of that year in an Instagram post. Super What?, DOOM’s final collaborative album with rapper Czarface was released last May.
