August 21st is almost here, which means the release of DOOM’s new collaborative project with Jneiro Jarel is almost here as well. JJ DOOM’s new LP, Key to the Kuffs, from what I understand, will be nothing but straight spitting from DOOM and production from Jarel.
“Rhymin Slang” is the newest track to drop from the project, look for this thing to be released on Lex Records.
A new track from the forthcoming collaborative album consisting of rhymes from the metal-faced MC known as (MF) DOOM, and production from Jneiro Jarel. Check the track list for the LP below, and look for this thing to be released on the 20th of August.

Last year, my favorite metal-faced MC, DOOM, was set to release a collaborative album with the one and only Ghostface Killah. Sadly, it didn’t pan out.
Now, DOOM is teasing us with a new track from a different project. It’s being titled JJ DOOM, which is due to the inclusion of music producer Jneiro Jarel. Jarel is no stranger to collaboration, having taken on projects involving TV On the Radio, Damon Albarn, and even Massive Attack.
On this first track to drop from the project, “BANISHED,” Jneiro certainly did a great job of tailoring his work to DOOM’s lo-fi, gritty style of beat production. On the DOOM side of things, well, the dude pulls out a flow that his listeners aren’t accustomed to hearing. I say “accustomed” because most of DOOM’s music features roughly the same flow, and even he sounds a little unused to rapping in it on this studio track.
Still, there are some funny lines being dropped here and there, and the song is weird enough to keep me stoked for hearing this forthcoming record, KEY TO THE CUFFS. Keep your eyes peeled for the album on Lex Records later this year.
