MF DOOM, mos def — April 4, 2015 | Comments (30)

Mos Def (Yassin Bey) covers Doom: Rainbows, Beef Rap, Strange Ways, Accordion, Curls, All Caps, Mayo Clinic (over J Dilla’s beat for Oh No’s “Move Pt. 2”). Filmed last May at Fort d’Aubervilliers by Samuel Thiebaut, edited by Antoine Kerninon, produced by Culturebox.


  1. Brilliant image Yeslin, this really works well “KEEP GOING HARD FAM” loving the new visuals and Doom is a True leader. Peace.

  3. This is amazing. I love that he reps the Mayo track from Born Like This, which was a way under-rated album, imo. I also love that Def don’t give a shit about how much he likes DOOM.

  5. Long fan of doom and mos,I don’t think anyone could redo a doom song,and make it better. I wish mos would have added his own flare to it to make it his”own” in a sense. Still very well done for sure.

  9. It’s like some other-side-of-the-Atlantic renegade underground-hip-hop all-star legends level V for vanguard type maneuver.

    MOS DOOM, go!

  10. The illest MC covering the illest MC. HIP HOP INCEPTION!

  11. Honestly, Def sounds drunk on this, just reading line for line with no style whatsoever.

  13. I appreciate the idea, but Mos voice is sharp and glaring and kind of trashes the elegance of the original tracks. He needs a dope effect, some remixed beats, or something to make this work. I would be excited about this if it was live, but as it is, it might has well be some random high school kid. No reason to listen to it if you have the original.

  14. Much love for Mos Def and MF Doom, and my favorite Bukowski line too.

  15. To have the artistic credibility to be able to do this and not be labeled a clown
    dick rider is very impressive. I have always wanted to do a small EP of DOOM covers,
    but with my own beats, like remix covers. Now I never will.

  21. This is not what I expected from Mos Def, poor and unconstructed…

  22. i tend to agree w the -comments // elzhi did this so much more effectively with his elmatic/illmatic covers album // mos, you need a live band to play these beats! love you man.

  23. OMG I need this in MP3! Bandcamp or Spotify pleaseeee. Love Mos, love DOOM, love covers, love this shit. Thanks.

  24. I wish they would have kept going. Mos looks like he wasn’t even getting into to it until the final track.

  28. I was super stoked when I saw the words BEYONDOOM. but upon listening…

    It seems sketchy, almost like a sneak diss at Doom. I’m a huge fan of both, but no point in listening to this. It’s a butchered up version of the original tracks. Obviously he was going for that, if not he would have delivered his own version…..(not covers)

    Possibly payback for sending an imposter onstage with Def in 2010 in Chicago?

    Can’t confirm cause I wasn’t at the show, but anyone back this theory?
