With Masta Ace’s “collaborative project” with DOOM finally available (via Fat Beats and iTunes), Spotify gets the green light to stream the entire shibang. And while some folks were hoping it was a 100% original collab, the final project showcases Ace rocking over 16 cuts selected from DOOM’s Special Herbs instrumentals. Either way, it’s dope and you can take a listen after the jump.
On June 11th, Stones Throw will be shipping out 5-inch vinyl of the DOOM-assisted single off Oh No’s Ohnomite LP. Two versions of the artwork will be available: The first with Oh No and DOOM on either side of the record, the second will have the images superimposed. Both illustrated by Charles Munka and designed by the homie Jeff Jank.
Months after the original announcement, Madlib finally found an offshore printing press that would give his “mutant porn” cover art a run. A few of the tracks from #13 have been heard on the limited vinyl, Fithy Ass Remixes, but this is the full 35-track ordeal expected to ship March 1st! Check out a sample with Jadakiss and DOOM below.
Tricked ya. It ain’t over yet. #13: The Black Tape is volume two of the Medicine Show remixes which started on #12. This is a 60-minute hip hop mixture with some of rap’s best, half-best, brilliant and borderline-retarded MCs, all colliding head-on with a collection of Madlib beats. Produced and mixed by the Loopdigga.
On top of the release for #13, Madlib is also dropping The Brick. A collection of all 13 CDs from the Medicine Show and all 13 booklets. Look for that to start shipping on March 27th!
Oh, and one last thing. Last night I got word that Madlib had nothing to do with the UCLA album that Blu released. Ain’t that some shit?
During the Toronto stop of his Canadian tour, Ghostface sits down with T-RexXx at a local barbershop to talk about his long-awaited collab album with DOOM. Promising the release is still a reality and the Swift & Changeable title might still be used.
Fresh off his MacheteVision project with the homie Kno (of CunninLynguists), the School of Sharks representative links up wwith MetalFace Records own Mobonix for a track DOOM first told us about while out in Madrid.
Bionic Jazz is a freeform hip hop album with a concentration on unorthodox somewhat experimental but wholly organic feel. It’s reminiscent of when jazz musicians would just pick up their instruments and play freely without worrying about the confines of what was the expected norm. This project features various musicians and producers coming together to break down the barriers of today’s current musical atmosphere.
During a Behind The Rhymes sit down, the DJ/engineer/producer extraordinaire shows his appreciate for Statik Selektah’s production (shown above), speaks on a mythical Just Blaze x DOOM album and shares his thoughts on DOOM and Madvillainy 2 (shown after the jump).
