Way, way back in February, MF DOOM and producer/rapper Jneiro Jarel reported on a collaborative album to be released in May under the name JJ DOOM. Well, May came and went and (presumably) none of us ever snagged a copy of Key To The Kuffs. What gives? No telling, but the duo are finally tipping the world to a hard release date. Key To The Kuffs will now come out August 21 via Lex Records.
The album will also feature the aforementioned appearances from Damon Albarn and Portishead’s Beth Gibbons: the former on a track intriguingly called “Bite The Thong,” and the latter on “GMO.” Is that a reference to “genetically modified organisms” or the New York Stock Exchange acronym for US mineral company General Moly? Guess we’ll find out August 21.
