DOOM Makes A Quirky Visual To One Of His Greatest Guest Verses (Video)
In the early 2000s, DOOM (a/k/a MF DOOM) transformed from an underground Hip-Hop lyricist to a Top 200 commercial juggernaut. The former KMD front man did this through a series of albums during a small window of time, including Madvillainy with Madlib, The Mouse & The Mask with Danger Mouse, and his Mm…Food solo at Atmosphere’s Rhymesayers Entertainment.
Besides this trifecta of acclaimed albums, the masked villain made a series of guest verses that displayed his nimble flows and intricate, oft-humorous wordplay in new places. None of these appearances was bigger than late 2004’s The Grind Date. Teaming with fellow Long Islanders De La Soul, DOOM spit to the best of his abilities on the building Jake One beat.
While “Rock Co.Kane Flow” never got a video—nor did many of the Sanctuary Records’ release singles, DOOM seemingly never forgot the moment. This week, while in Miami, Florida (at the Illpoints Festival), the MC formerly known as Zev Love X threw on the Islanders jersey, played with some editing effects, and sprinkled fans with some timeless spit for the performance.
If questioning whether or not this is in fact Daniel Dumile, Heads can take solace in the fact that onetime DOOM label Nature Sounds Records is the uploader.
