DOOM Unexpected Guests
There’s only one thing better than a new DOOM album—a collection of supervillainous collabs. On Unexpected Guests, the artist list reads like a lyrical enthusiast’s wet dream: De La Soul, Vast Aire, Count Bass D, Masta, Talib Kweli, various Wu members, and more. Album highlights include “Sniper Elite,” on which Ghost and DOOM join up for black-ops fun over a Dilla beat, and the self-explanatory “Quite Buttery,” where the Count and the Dr. trade high-cholesterol lines. Buggy cartoon excerpts and looped breaks keep it zany, and MF’s slightly slurred delivery is as dope as ever. No currently active MC has more gotta-rewind-that moments.
