Jay Electronica Makes Magic With MF DOOM On A New Song

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads sift through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, it’s better than it’s ever been. Not only can we go back and listen to all of our favorites at the click of a button, but there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recently released music. We update it regularly, so subscribe to follow us on Spotify if you like what you hear.

Although it is approaching two years since the world lost Daniel Dumile (aka MF DOOM), music lovers are still benefiting from new music from the legendary lyricist, producer, and visual artist. Earlier this month, Metal Face’s DangerDOOM partner Danger Mouse unveiled a supreme DOOM collaboration, “Belize,” from his stellar Black Thought tandem album Cheat Codes.

Now, London, England-based MC/producer Sonnyjim releases “Barz Simpson,” a song that features DOOM and Jay Electronica. The song begins with Jim rapping about jet-setting around Europe in the company of beautiful women. Then DOOM makes a memorable verbal entrance to over a beat produced by The Purist. “Salute, all brothers bless up / Even rappers up in daddy’s closet playing dress up / Real spiffy, spark a cigar for ya / Speak to only bosses, regards to your employer / Tom Sawyer, skedaddle, fake it ’til they make it / Three ratchets press up to they grill now strip naked / Nah, nah, nah, wait, pause, no whole meals / Loose change for first-class flights and phone bills / Dope kills, stress will get you faster / At often, open ocean, toastin’ the heat blaster / Bang-bang, you rang? DOOM got a new thang / Reunited like Wu-Tang, punks pay for poon-tang.” DOOM closes with one of his precise descriptions: “Slide off like a pimp, maybe it’s the gout / She looked-ed good, and smelt-ed like trout / Pregnant with a baby in her mouth, out and about.

Jay Electronica raps last, with an extremely high-quality verse. “I paint a picture like Salvador / Good God, what a matador / Retrieve all the sheets while the wolves was asleep / What a mighty fine day for a metaphor, huh / Like Adele, hello from the other side / The flow is paranormal, the show was another vibe,” he spits. Then, Jay shouts out his label: “Travel every square inch with me as the rhyme grow exponentially / The Roc is the team, when I swing, they clear the bench for me / Primadonna, draped in Loro Piana / Never crunch under pressure like Cuba and men of honor / What do you expect, your honor? The Tidal red dope / We plant flags on our enemy’s sands and burn our boats / Coast to coast, it’s the great space coaster / Cállate la boca, say hello to my empty holster.

Notably, DOOM, Jay Elect’, and Sonnyjim are all double-threats who produce. However, The Purist captures the moment with a dusty, nostalgic track. Previously, Sonnyjim has made full-length collaboration albums with D.I.T.C.’s Buckwild, Vic Spencer, Da$h, Conway The Machine, and Kev Brown, among others. “Barz Simpson” belongs to the upcoming White Girl Wasted, a September 6 Daupe Media effort which reportedly involves Madlib and DJ Premier.

Last year, DOOM and Jay Electronica appeared alongside Westside Gunn on IDK’s “RED.”
