“Just keep an eye out, like ‘Aye aye Captain!'”
Mos Def performed “Accordion” from Madvillainy at that now infamous Chicago show were a MF DOOM doppelganger was running rampant.

As good a reason as any to post the official vid below.
Sesame Street is 40 years old, and it reminded me of an MF DOOM song. Well it actually reminded me of good times as a kiddie in front of my television, learning my ABCs and 123s. As for DOOM; “Kookies” from 2004’s MM..Food? album samples the music from Sesame Street’s end credits (“Funky Chimes“). Wait for the 1:55 mark in the video below.
Hmm, hope Mr. Dumile cleared that. And for the uninitiated, “Kookies” has nathan to do with “cookies.” This post was brought you by the letter M and the number 8. Peace to the Cookie Monster.

Usually can’t stand “trailers” or “previews” but the Super Villain gets a pass.
But really, DOOM diehards will have these selections in their collections, or at least heard them. Still, it’s a good way for those late to the Metal Face fold to play catch up, and have Mr. Dumile collect another check.

Black Dante recites Zev Love X’s verse from “Meat Grinder,” with assistance from the Supervillain. Further vidence that a DOOM and Mighty Mos Def album is so profoundly necessary. [Spotted via Stone Throw’s twitter, via Frolab.com]

Real nice MF DOOM DOOM feature in the Village Voice. Guess it was really him. Really, I just wanted an excuse to post Kausing Much Damage’s “Peachfuzz” clip below. Shout to Grand Puba on the vibes. Hmm, what did ever happen to Onyx The Birthstone Kid?

Also, here is the version of “Angeles” (pretty sure that’s how it’s spelled) that for some reason DOOM decided to add distracting ass drums to for the version (“Angelz”) on his Born Like This album that dropped 3/23. The album is damn good. But, I’ll have to get back to you on whether it’s touching my “all caps when you spell the name” fav: Madvillainy.
