MF Doom: master of the gravelly verse and the art of name-changing. He recently made the Diddy-esque move of shortening his name to DOOM, though that’s as far as DOOM/Diddy similarities go, really. After appearing as DANGERDOOM (with Danger Mouse), Madvillain (with Madlib) and DOOMSTARKS (with Ghostface Killah), DOOM is collaborating with Jneiro Jarel. Their combined name? JJ DOOM. Their new track “Guv’nor” is a woozy mix of start-stop guitar, vocal samples and magnetic two-note bass.
JJ DOOM’s debut, Key To The Kuffs, is out August 20. Listen to “Guv’nor” below. [P4K]
