Over the past few months, I have noticed more and more people talking about this mysterious box put out by Akomplice that features MF DOOM’s mask and name on it. But until a few days ago, no one really knew what the hell was inside of it except for what we all assumed was a bunch of material related to the masked rapper-producer. And, wouldn’t you know it, that’s exactly the case. It’s not only filled with random goodies, though.
It also came with a red cassette tape featuring a track from DOOM/STARKS, aka the duo of DOOM and Ghostface Killah. We have known that these two have been working together for years, but only now have we heard some actual material aside from tracks off their respective solo albums. “Angelz” off DOOM’s Born Like This was their latest collaboration.
Of course, this new track, “Victory Laps (Madvillainz Remix),” changes all that and sounds fucking awesome, even if the audio might be somewhat off in the below video. No worries, though, because the original version of “Victory Laps” will appear on iTunes on July 26 while a picture disc of the track drops Aug. 30.
You can stream the track and check out some of the Akomplice box’s goodies below. Update: You can also stream the radio rip below.
