key to the kuffs
the world’s tongue-twistiest mc, mf doom, wraps his enthralling, fast-paced rhymes around jneiro jarel’s shuffling fly lo-meets-dilla-meets-uk bass beats, to terrific effect.
the debut collaborative album from doom & jarel (aka dr who dat?) doesn't disappoint. heavy hip-hop production leans towards grime, dubstep & british techno behind mf doom's one-of-a-kind raw, grizzled flow. recorded while the rapper was 'banished' from the states & living in the uk, he references british culture in his fast-paced raps & all the carefully constructed skits, which bear that skewed doom humour from start to finish. it's great to hear a u.s. emcee showing a keen understanding of the quirks of his london birthplace, while jj's tough, far out beats will appeal to fans of j dilla, flying lotus & el-p. "a terrific collaboration between two of hip hop’s maverick talents" - bbc.
