MF DOOM Says He’s Done With The United States

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from MF Doom (JJ Doom album announcement with Jneiro Jarel aside), and the presumption among the wishful thinker set is that he’s been hard at work on the supposedly imminent Madvillainy sequel and the Swift and Changeable album with Ghostface Killah (which, let’s be honest, probably isn’t happening at this point). Not so. According to a recent chat with Q Magazine, Doom was denied entry into the United States upon completing his 2010 European tour.

Born in Britain and moved to the United States as a child, Doom never bothered becoming a full-fledged American citizen. He’s been chilling out in South London finishing up the JJ Doom album, Key to the Kuffs, which he described as a “pop-rock” album with features from UK rock luminaries like Damon Albarn of Blur/Gorillaz and Beth Gibbons of Portishead. “I’m done with the United States,” he says of his ongoing fight to re-enter the U.S. [via]

  8. As long as he keeps putting music out, I’m good. Thanks to this newfangled internet dealie, we should still be able to download it here in the States.

    If he says he’s done with hip-hop, then we have an issue and perhaps need to stage an intervention.

    If you were a real DOOM fan you would hevae heard every beat on Born like This a million times before that album came out. He’s just fucking lazy, and he also never shows at concerts, it’s laughable.

  11. Good thing I’m Canadian. Sorry to the neighbors of the south though.
