Key To The Kuffs
After catching criticism for sending out doppelgangers for his 2008 North American tour, MF DOOM took the stage himself during his 2010 European trek. In a tragic turn of events, MF DOOM was forced to make a home out of England when visa issues left him unable to return home. He linked up with fellow experimentalist Jneiro Jarel during his exile to form another portmanteau, JJ DOOM. The resulting project Key to the Kuffs isn’t quite the act of kismet that Madvillainy was, but MF DOOM does more than enough to acquit himself on Jarel’s septic collection of beats. He’s shouting out the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull on “Guv’nor” and barrelling through the warped bloops on the Damon Albarn-assisted “Bite the Thong.” Cockney-rhymin’ DOOM is still DOOM. We have this on Cyan Blue vinyl.
