In 10 days, CZARFACE and MF DOOM will release CZARFACE Meets METAL FACE. The project fully unites the masked villain with the veteran fusion of Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck with 7L & Esoteric. Previously, Daniel Dumile participated in the cipher (2015’s “Ka-Bang!”) to a strong reception. On this upcoming go-round, he’s all the way committed. In early February the fearless foursome released their first single “Nautical Depth.” Now arrives the project’s first video, “Bomb Thrown.”

For 25 years, live-action DOOM videos have been scarce at best. That rareness adds to the mythology around the legendary lyricist and celebrated producer. Thus, “Bomb Thrown” is not a traditional video. Instead, the Kendra Morris-directed vid’ is composed of mixed media (akin to ’70s and ’80s cartoons and stop motion). The concept, a collabo’ between Morris and Eso’, is very specific to the group and its comic villain persona. This is, of course, something Heads know about DOOM too, dating back to Operation Doomsday.

In the song, The Rebel I.N.S. kicks things off, followed by Esoteric, and DOOM rhyming last. 7L provides the perfect complementary beat—both dusty and menacing—built are villains, who take no mess.

The rhymes are potent. Esoteric closes out his verse with, “Let the mind take you where the cameras can’t / It’s very necessary, like a Q-Tip Grammy rant.” In his extended verse DOOM waxes his trademark stream of consciousness style and symmetrical compound rhyme schemes. Jet-lagged, he attacks culture-vultures in his verse, and says that wack MCs will soon turn to dope fiends.

Last Friday (March 16), Bishop Nehru released Elevators: Act I & II. Half of the project uses DOOM beats from new studio sessions, while the other half is provided by KAYTRANADA.
