MF DOOM completed 11 tracks towards a sequel to 2004's classic Madvillainy album with Madlib. This is according to Stones Throw label head Peanut Butter Wolf, who, Okayplayer notes, appeared on Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds' Juan Ep is Dead podcast to talk about DOOM -- whose October death was only reported a couple weeks ago -- and his legacy.
“DOOM was always telling me ‘It’s 85% done, it’s 85% done.’ That was the magic number,” Wolf said, revealing those 11 tracks have been around since 2009 but that DOOM wanted to wait until “a few more songs” were completed. Unfortunately, as Wolf waited, verses ended up appearing on other rapper's records, or get leaked to YouTube. “I got a little frustrated, and I was just like, you know, ‘It’s gonna happen when it’s gonna happen.’ I don’t wanna be the guy to force creativity or anything.”
