Jneiro Jarel and DOOM’s collaboration as JJ DOOM, Keys to the Kuffs, was one of our favorite records of last year, so we’re psyched that the duo have still got more up their sleeves. Here’s a new track called “Bookhead,” accompanied by a typically bizarre music video directed by the artist Steve Powers, who you might know better as ESPO. Watch as DOOM finds a new disguise and then reads Chaucer; listen as he delivers some charmingly cryptic, smart verses over one of JJ’s weirder beat. We’re hoping this means we can expect more new music from these two – stay tuned.
