Danger Doom, a collaboration between producer Danger Mouse and rapper MF Doom, will reissue their one-off 2005 LP The Mouse & The Mask with a pair of unreleased tracks, including the just-unveiled "Mad Nice," featuring the Roots' Black Thought.
Built on a looping, swirling piano melody and horror star Vincent Price's unmistakable laugh, the two rappers flex their lyrical muscles on the unearthed track from the Adult Swim-inspired project.
"Straight and narrow as the flight of the sparrow," Doom rhymes. "Seat up in a beat-up Camaro / How you supposed to shoot for the moon with one arrow?"
The Mouse & The Mask reissue arrives May 5th and is available to pre-order now through Doom's own Metalface Records.
In addition to the 14-track LP – which featured guests Ghostface Killah, Talib Kweli and Cee Lo Green as well as Cartoon Network stalwarts – and two unreleased tracks, the deluxe 3LP reissue will also boast the previously digital-only Occult Hymn EP, a 2006 7-track companion release that will be presented "with high-quality audio for the first time ever."
