MF Doom – Assassination Day ft. Kool G Rap
MF Doom drops a Kool G Rap assisted song titled “Assassination Day.” On the track Doom brings another legend to the fold in Kool G Rap, who has the honor of trading bars with MF Doom.
Over some Hitchock-esque strings, G Rap delivers a relentless barrage of New York street shit, complimented by Doom’s menacing aura. For those standing on corners with signs reading “hip-hop is dead,” perhaps this is what the rapture sounds like.
While many rappers have likened themselves to super villains, this may be the truest we’ve come to true malevolence in a minute. Doom wears it well, polishing off the mask and blade with measured care.
