Did you know that the ‘M’ in ‘MF DOOM’ stood for mirror – it’s true*, just watch the visuals for ‘Bookhead’ from JJ DOOM‘s album Key To The Kuffs. The release, a certified fresh FIVE STARS here at Word Is Bond and featuring in our top 10 albums of 2012, is the product of underground legend DOOM on the mic and the equally dope Jneiro Jarel on production and was one of the most talked about LPs of last year and has received a “butter” version – an extended Key To The Kuffs featuring remixes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Beck and Clams Casino along with unreleased material. The duo have kept the hype running, release videos and gigging – like with our recent JJ DOOM giveaway – and here is their latest instalment. Whether they will do a follow up record, I don’t know, but as we’ve seen before with Madlib and Danger Mouse, DOOM and JJ go together like strawberries and cream.
‘Bookhead’ is a song of duality with a complete switch in beat halfway through, and the visuals are similarly strange but equally awesome just as you’d expect.
*it’s not true.
