MF DOOM @ Red Bull Music Academy
The Red Bull Music Academy has been bringing some absolutely incredible pieces of hip-hop history to the table this year, including hour long interviews with cats like Wu-Tang Clan, Black Moon and Slick Rick. This might be my favorite piece yet though, considering that you don't hear MF DOOM speak his mind off wax too often. Check out Chairman Mao chop it up with DOOM for over an hour and a half at this year's Red Bull Music Academy lecture in Madrid, Spain.
"“Bear witness as Doom discusses the early ’80s episodes of Afrika Islam’s “Zulu Beats” radio shows on WHBI, which would provide the inspiration for his signature audio collages. Listen as he explains the defining characteristics of his plethora of performance personas (Zev Love X, Doom, Viktor Vaughn, King Ghidra). Marvel as he dissects the makings of classic recordings such as KMD’s Mr. Hood and Black Bastards, Operation: Doomsday, and his essential collab with Madlib, Madvillain’s Madvillainy. Mystery, science, and theater – all in abundance when this Supervillain speaks.”- EGO TRIP
