READ DOOM – Born Like This – LP review HERE
Long-suffering MF Doom fans will be unsurprised to learn that his latest solo LP Born Into This, originally due for release on 21 October on Lex Records, then delayed until 28 October has now been shelved with no revised release date. MF Doom a.k.a Daniel Dumile, Zev Love X, Viktor Vaughn and King Geedorah has apparently also had a “just call me Doom” moment because the MF/’Metal Face’ prefix has been dropped – wonder if that’s a delayed reaction to Grimm swapping the Mad Flows for Grand Master?
Doom’s album Born Into This was set to feature production from J Dilla (presumably done a while ago and not from beyond the grave), Dangermouse and appearances from guest MCs including Ghostface and Raekwon. Ah well – you’ll just have to console yourself with the second Madvillain LP. Oh – hang on – no you can’t. It’s not ready yet.
