Jake One "Trap Door feat. MF DOOM"
Having honed his skill for crafting solid beats as a producer during the last 10 years, Seattle-based Jake One has finally put out his own debut full-length album, White Van Music. The album features an impressive blend of up-and-coming artists, such as Freeway and Brother Ali, and well-known figures like Mary J. Blige. On “Trap Door,” the apt producer encases rapper MF DOOM’s gruff, deadpan vocals in a low-key, surf rock-tinged backdrop that rolls lazily past like a wave on a calm Hawaiian beach. Lulu McAllister
