“Notebook 05”: MF Doom Returns as Viktor Vaughn for First Time in 4 Years

Notebook 05

Perhaps today is a good time to check in with MF Doom and Adult Swim‘s The Missing Notebook Rhymes project, which is now in its sixth week. Why now? Because the track, titled only “Notebook 05” (if this is confusing, just note that the project’s first track “Negus” was designated “Notebook 00”), features the return of Doom’s Viktor Vaughn character for the first time in four years.

What can one say about “Notebook 05,” how it fits into the MF Doom canon, why his super-evil alter ego Viktor Vaughn chose this moment to return to the world? As always, it’s probably best to let Doom/Vaughn speak for himself.

And you can do the same by checking out “Notebook 5” at The Missing Notebook Rhymes’ official site here, where you can also catch up on the rest of the project if you haven’t already, as well as staying tuned for the next nine weeks’ installments.
