MF Doom, Thom York Collabo LP in Works

Independent rap favorite DOOM (FKA MF Doom) recently revealed that he is in talks with Radiohead front man, Thom Yorke, on collaborating on an entire full length album.

In an interview with 3D World Magazine, the self described “masked supervillain” said, “[I’m] doing some stuff with Thom Yorke. [W]e’re working on some duets. Just like preliminary shit but we’ll probably end up doing a whole record together.”

The former KMD rapper, who teamed up with Yorke back in 2009 for the remix to his track “Gazillion Ear,“ told that the singer initially called him about recording music together. “He actually approached us,” Doom said in a previous interview. “He heard a rough version of “’Gazillion Year’] when I was still working on it and reached out to the label. He wanted to do it on the strength. I wasn’t too familiar with his work but then I did my research on him and saw he’s a pretty prolific dude. I saw how both of our styles could compliment each other and bring more people together with it because his fans are hardcore, if not more hardcore than my fans. It was a good way to bridge the two.

First on the schedule for DOOM is the sequel to his 2004 joint LP with Madlib, Madvillainy, which is expected to hit shelves later this year. —Elan Mancini

    radiohead’s arguably the biggest band of our generation young doom, i’d say you’re a pretty lucky fella. espcially since thom yorke has a reputation of not caring about other popular acts even if they revere him.

    i cant wait

    Niiiice to shitty atists getting together to record some shitty music.
    Radiohead sux ass they have had one good song since they came out maybe 2, and this dude…well he is underground for a reason.

    Real rap is making a comeback. I would say something to the dude above concerning his weak arguments but he’s probably just a 16 year old Gucci fan.


    Far from it bro, I am actually in my 30′s and a huge fan of real rap because I grew up with it and this dude doom is not real rap. Also Thom York and Radiohead suck, I also listen to rock and alternative music and Radiohead is actually one of my least favorite bands, they have had one maybe two good songs, their music is mostly abstract whiny emo crap.

      Nah, not at all, in fact almost all of their music they refuse to say what it means. For Kid A they wrote the lyrics by writing lines of lyrics out and cutting them up, then putting them in a hat and drawing them out.

    anybody who think DOOM sux cant comprehend his complex lyrics, cause if you break what he spits down you would be truly amazed
