Madvillainy is the debut album by American hip hop duo Madvillain, released in March 23, 2004 on Stones Throw Records. Featuring vocals performed by MF DOOM and production by Madlib, it received universal acclaim from music critics for its unique and innovative approach to hip hop; short tracks, abstract lyrics, few choruses and a sound generally unfriendly to commercial radio. 

The album achieved moderate commercial success, peaking at #179 on the Billboard 200, and attracted much attention from media outlets not usually covering hip hop music.
