A lot of stuff happens that the news won't tells yous

MF Doom Featuring Mr. Fantastik - Rapp Snitch Knishes - Ol' Metalface is back, but he hasn't exactly gone away. With his 5th(!!!) release this year by my count, MM...Food?, Doom finally drops the follow up to '99's Doomsday that we've all been waiting for. "Rapp Snitch Knishes", is classic Doom, with squealing, echoed out classic rock guitar doing it's thing in the distance while Doom and Fantastik lay down the rhymes that make the metalman one of the most respected MC's in independent hiphop, lambasting the industry that abandoned him as he was poised to storm the heights. Most of the album is Solo-Doom, so it's nice to hear a collaboration, and in the wake of the disappointing Venemous Villain, a collaborator who can hold his own up against Doom.

MF Doom - Kookiez - If MM... Food? is a three course meal, than "Kookiez" is desert. The track opens with some vintage funk beats, snares and horns, and Doom is in full attack mode, turning from his traditional targets to spam E-mail and moral decline, before giving a litany of shout outs to the great baked goods of the world. The production is absolutely ace here, with some killer drum fills and one of the albums better Cut'n'Paste collage skits in the albums finale - in Dooms world at least, he is poised for the takeover that eluded him a decade ago. "If anyone can do it..."

It's rapidly turning in to hip-hop week here at TTIKTDA.

Why not? Tomorrow, some Canadian white-trash Rap-Funk.

The backing track on kookiez...isn't that the end-credit music from PBS' The Electric Company? Or something like that?
