Not content with only just dropping his collaboration album with Jneiro Jarel and another in the pipeline with Ghostface Killah, DOOM has now suggested that the follow up to 2004's Madvillainy, which will see the metal faced maestro team up with Madlib once again, is "almost done."

Speaking to HipHopDX, DOOM suggested that the new record will bring some new old school beats: "You gotta dig. Endless diggin', yo. These niggas got some shit. J Rocc and Madlib? You know, these niggas got some shit that's ill as hell that niggas never heard, that's as ill as any of these old breaks but they just haven't come to surface yet. Watch when you hear the new Madvillain record. It's almost done."

All this working on new material may explain why the New York veteran has taken to sending DOOMalikes to stand in for him recently.
