The album was inspired by Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming (where it also received considerable advertising) and features guest performances by Ghostface Killah, Cee-Lo and Talib Kweli as well as character voices and clips from many Adult Swim showThe text above was copied from the wikipedia article about The Mouse and the Mask: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mouse_And_The_Mask
This album is great, for those of you who likes Hip Hop, and this is very cool hip hop, not like Eminem or Puff Daddy, this is Dj-style underground old-scholl Hip Hop.... And one of the the most peculiar aspects of this record it is that all it´s song are based on adult swim cartoons, whit original voices of the characters, in my opinion the best song of all the album is the one about Space Ghost, it´s absolutely hilarious.
Other bizarre aspect of this record is the fact that MF Doom is an excelent hip hop DJ whose alter ego is based in Fantastic Four´s Victor Von Doom Dr. Doom, His real name is Daniel Dumile but "no one" has ever seen his face because he uses a copy of Dr Doom mask... His previous album MM..Food? has extensive use of voices, music and original audio of old FF cartoons and other 70´s cartoon shows...
And the other one, Danger Mouse, is other hip hop DJ who wears a mouse disguise all the time, thus the album cover is a cartoon mouse whit a Dr Doom mask on.
Music based on CARTOONS.....cool.
