DOOM collaborations always seem to take their time. After months of delays (the album was reportedly complete back in September, and was originally scheduled for a November release), Viktor Vaughn’s collaboration with long-time emcee Masta Ace is finally here.
Entitled MA DOOM: Son of Yvonne, the project isn’t a joint studio effort as such. Instead, Ace has built the 16-track LP on DOOM instrumentals from his Special Herbs, a series of 10 volumes which were released between 2001 and 2005 on numerous labels including High Times Records, Nature Sounds Records, Shaman Work Records, Female Fun Records, and Dumile’s own Metal Face Records.
The Juice Crew rapper is joined by a supporting cast of Big Daddy Kane, Pav Bundy and Reggie B to help keep things fresh. You can stream MA DOOM: Son of Yvonne in full below via Spotify, and purchase a physical copy on Fat Beats, out today (July 17th).
