Listen To DOOM's First Raps Of 2018 On Dabrye's "Lil Mufukuz"
Last year, Todd Mullinix, better known as producer Dabrye, announced that he would be returning for his first album in 10 years, titled Three/Three. As a part of the announcement the producer dropped “The Appetite,” a posse cut of sorts that featured Danny Brown, Roc Marciano, and Quelle Chris.
Now, Dabrye has released a new single that features the one and only DOOM. Titled “Lil Mufukuz,” the almost three minute track finds DOOM doing what he does best, his effortless flow complimenting the menacing pulse of Dabrye’s beat.
“On top of the legend blessing the beat, I was so pleased when he brought his brilliant narrative in direct response to the sample,” Dabrye said to FADER. “As a producer, it can be intimidating working with a beatmaker of DOOM’s caliber.” Previously, the two created another record for Dabrye’s last full-length project, 2006’s Two/Three.
Last year, DOOM was a part of a special collaborative endeavor with Adult Swim, where he was supposed to release 15 new songs in 15 weeks. Titled DOOM’s The Missing Notebook Rhymes the campaign abruptly ended just shy of its midway point after week seven’s release of “Notebook 06.”
The campaign facilitated the release of vaulted collaborations with Kool Keith, Jay Electronica, Alchemist and the late Sean Price. All but the Price track have disappeared along with any trace of the project, as it was included on the posthumous album, Imperius Rex. In a statement delivered to Mass Appeal, the late-night animation network has to be “ending our relationship with DOOM, and thus, the remaining Missing Notebook Rhymes will unfortunately have to remain…missing.”
