Listen: Brand New Madvillain Track Leaked!

Leaked!

DOOM… the notorious hip-hop villain pulled another bait-and-switch in late November, sending his goons to lip-sync in his stead for an advertised appearance at the Grand Star in Chinatown. But Stones Throw… may be making attempts at amends. In a recent DJ set for BBC 1Xtra, J.Rocc leaked a brand new song from the unreleased second Madvillain album.

THIS JUST IN: Leimert Park nu-funk pharaoh Dâm-Funk has leaked, via Twitter, an unreleased epic titled “The Lone L.A. Funksta”… Hard to believe the prolific fella has any extra material considering he’s released five mini albums this year, and yet, “Funksta” isn’t just a free song — it’s 12 minutes of free song. Perfect for Friday-night boulevard cruising.
