 I think Caskets is probably the best of his verses.

 

Haven't listened to the project, sad to hear all the Doom spots weren't like Caskets, I was really digging that one

i could be overstating it. On Great Things he's sandwiched between two weak verses and two godawful choruses, and his delivery is alright, but it's a short weird verse about positive thinking and motivation that sounds very un-villainous to me.

 

Disastrous does kind of sound like a One Beer pt. II and it's way better verse than Great Things ("we stay reppin till it spread like the Black Death / and shred mice till no wack left / crack breath") but it sounds to me like he has a fuckin cold, or he's mumbly, or this is the first and only take he did.

LMAO GET ON THIS:

Lex is on that cassette bandwagon, multicolor. They don't seem to release anybody but DOOM on cassette. Wonder if it was DOOM's idea? "You know, I've found I can buy, on average, a few extra beers if you guys release a cassette version"

Actually got to hang out with Bishop last weekend. I was with my industry buddies (used to work at XXL) backstage at Danny Brown, and there he was. For some reason, a friend of mine had the bright idea of sneaking Bishop into a bar afterward (kid has never drank before). And it worked! But he wasn't really interested in it—just sat that there with a smile on his face and declined us buying him beers.

 

For the record, the guy is a total sweetheart. We also talked about Madlib for a bit and the discussion of looping vs. "stabs" (inspired by a Jon Wayne tweet earlier in the week).

^ that should've been the band name... Rich Uncle is way catchier than "_____+DOOM" or "DOOM+_____" or "MF+______" or any other awkward combination of names.

Aren't a lot of these beats from DOOM's tapes? Honestly after meeting the kid, I think it was just about liking and believing in the guy.

Picked up Nehruviandoom, wish this would get an instrumental release (I bought it since I'm 99% sure they won't do that) . Still an ok release, but wish it was solo doom instead.

I think that photo is a great explanation for the current state of MV2.

 

The Madlib is present and accounted for; meanwhile The Villain is nowhere to be seen...

The GTA V reissue is going to have a new DOOM cut on flylo fm. Probably produced by Flying Lotus.

I'm reluctant to even listen.  Huge DOOM fan but I can't get into Nehru.  His buzz doesn't seem natural.  In one sense I'm shocked DOOM would put out an LP with an upstart like him, but in another, it makes perfect sense.  It's the same reason why Kanye had Kendrick open for him on his Yeezus tour.  This is going to be understood as blasphemy by some of you but the reality of the situation is that there is not better way for someone like DOOM to stay relevant/ appeal to a younger generation than collaborating w/ someone as marketable as Nehru.  I'll probably press play on this album a year or two from now.  I doubt I'm missing anything.

I just picked up the Nehru-DOOM... my two pennies:

 

Great production from DOOM.  Had low expectations going in... expected more old beats than I found...  Instead, found the production side really refreshing. And nice reminder how DOOM comes complete with interludes/instrumental bits that tie tracks together... gives a great "album experience" to the whole thing.

 

As far as Nehru goes, I think he's great on this.  He's not a game changer type of artist and, though I see the logic in the accusations, I don't think he represents a stab/ploy to grab younger listeners... one thing is, he's sorta got this kind of throwback vibe built into his flow. By that I mean, his words stay closer to the surface (way less abstract than DOOM) and focuses more on the ride than the reference points or intricate word play (which is probably what DOOM fans will miss most with a guy like Bishop).  I say "throwback" but it doesn't sound like someone emulating an older style it just seems to come natural and honest to BN.  Especially with the repetitive choruses, which I like, the overall combo has a nice older school feel to the project.  I hate saying "old school" because again, it doesn't come off as intentionally trying to create an older type of sound and it is a fresh sounding record overall, just don't know how else to describe that aspect of the album.  Though you'd never mistake one for the other, Nehru reminds me of Mr. Fantastik in that he has a somewhat simple approach to the words but can really make a rhyme bounce in way that sounds effortless and smooth.

 

I'm sure this has been said before, but this one also reminds me a lot the King Geedorah project.  Obviously the recipe is comparable.  But Nehru is that kind of rapper that fits naturally over DOOM production, and because of the production style you can really enjoy a classic rhymes-and-choruses type of approach.  In fact, while I will take all the DOOM verses he's ready to give us, if there's one thing I think would have elevated this project it would have been maybe a couple of guest MCs with the same approach added along the way...

 

by the way, anyone know what happened to Hassan Chop after "I Wonder"?

Personally I consider Nehruviandoom to be an EP. I like it as an EP.

If I was to consider it an LP id find it a disappointment. (I know it's marketed as an LP but 9 tracks? Anything less than 10 tracks will always be an EP to me). Production is great but Nehru is a little padestrian if I'm honest.

As for the Quasimoto Instagram pic of DOOM being shot...maybe he is going to be another character other than DOOM for a while. If that is the case then perhaps another album on the way. Or maybe DOOM is being awkward again and Madlib has had enough of his B.S. lol

P.S. Wonder if that album that 'Doomsayer' was supposed to be on was canned.

That pic has been around for a while already. For those who don't know the dude behind the mask is Lee Harvey Oswald, who I guess was regarded as something of a villain (or scapegoat) by the US government, being shot by Jack Ruby.

 

The mask has been superimposed on however many peoples' images now, Benjamin Franklin for example (was he a villain though or is it just about the $?)

 

Also not the first time a small-time hoax or whatever you want to call it has come about DOOM carking it.
