DOOM Announces 1st New KMD Album In 24 Years With "True light years", With Jay Electronica
For all those Metalface fans.
After nearly 25 years and dozens of projects, DOOM is back with a new KMD track. "The true light years" which features Jay Electronica, is part of Adult Swim's The Missing Notebook of Rhymes of the series, which promises to 15 weeks of new DOOM collabs and singles. The Jay-assisted track marks the second week and the following "Negus", with the guest vocals of the late Price.
In addition to the "True light-years," DOOM has also revealed that the release of another full length project in the framework of the KMD moniker titled Crack In Time, the first of the new KMD album in 24 years. It is reportedly distributed through Metalface/Sounds of Nature, the INEVITABILITY of the own publishing house.
Back when DOOM was known as Zev Love X, the enigmatic rapper was part of a Hip Hop group called KMD. Formed in 1988, the group began as a graffiti, but finally returned to the music. A year later, MC Serch recruited them for the seminal 3rd Bass LP, The Cactus Album, which led to a deal with Elektra Records.
KMD released their debut project, Mr. Hood, in 1991, but the label shelved the group of the second 1993 album Black bastards. After DOOM, the younger brother and KMD member DJ Subroc was killed by a car when he was crossing New York, the highway London-born MC disappeared over the years. Finally reemerged in the late '90s as the villain, MF Doom.
