Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain (2xLP - Test Pressing - Fat Beats Exclusive)


Limited to 10 numbered and handstamped copies!

Fat Beats is excited to announce the Fat Beats exclusive, 15 year anniversary re-issue of Viktor Vaughn's long out-of-print classic, Vaudeville Villain. Starring MF DOOM arguably at the peak of his game, it's one of the most captivating, cartoonish and finest releases in his storied catalog.

Fifteen years later, we're proud to commemorate the album's anniversary with a limited 2LP vinyl release, featuring the album's original artwork presented here exclusively on a special silver foil jacket and pressed on two variants, both exclusive to Fat Beats: Black & Silver vinyl, limited to 700 copies, and silver vinyl, limited to 1200 copies.

Known otherwise to most as legendary emcee MF DOOM, Metal Fingers, King Geedorah or Zev Luv X of KMD, DOOM's first outing as Viktor Vaughn follows him down a lyrical wormhole, with production from RJD2, King Honey, Heat Sensor and Max Bill.

This concept album evokes plenty of high comedy, street technology, and hijinks, with next-school beats that move freely in the spaces between electronica and hip-hop. Take a trip back to the origin of the Super Villain. An unanticipated time travel-machine breakdown left him stuck in the early 90’s where he has no choice but to battle sucka MCs and carry out side-hustles so he can repair the time machine and go back to the future.
