The Cheat Codes album by Danger Mouse and Black Thought comes out on August 12. On the album, you’ll hear from A$AP Rocky, Run the Jewels, MF Doom, Michael Kiwanuka, Joey Bada$$, Russ, Raekwon, and Conway the Machine.
Danger Mouse hasn’t made a hip-hop album since 2005’s The Mouse and the Mask, which he made with the late MF Doom. The new album has 12 tracks. Since 2018, when he started hosting The Tonight Show with the Roots, Black Thought has put out three Streams of Thought EPs or albums.
The duo also showed off the album’s artwork and tracklist, which includes Raekwon, Russ, Joey Badass, MF Doom, ASAP Rocky, Conway The Machine, Run The Jewels, and more. See below.
In 2005, Danger Mouse and Black Thought worked on a project called Dangerous Thoughts. Danger, who was born Brian Burton, went on to work with Broken Bells, Gnarls Barkley, Karen O, Adele, U2, the Black Keys, Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many others.
A release says that Black Thought’s incredible lyrics, razor-sharp rapping, and raw hunger are more powerful and exciting than ever. Cheat Codes is more than the sum of its parts because of its unique alchemy and the fact that players can help each other improve.
