DOOM is the newly truncated moniker of near infallible critical darling and freakishly cerebral emcee MF DOOM. Unexpected Guests is his latest LP, a muddled collection of rarities, collaborations and remixes featuring the likes of Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, GZA and Talib Kweli.
And quite fittingly considering his album’s name (if internet murmurings are to be believed) TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek will follow in the footsteps of Danger Mouse and Madlib and take up Production duties on DOOM’s as yet unnamed forthcoming album. We know hip-hop heads have been collaborating with rock dudes a fair bit recently (Jay-Z/Luke Steel, Kid Cudi/Ratatat/MGMT) but this union is one for the weird kids on Mars in the year 3010. Please God let this one be true.
