There’s no secret that Yasiin Bey has been a long-time fan of DOOM. There has been a FroLab video around for years that shows Yasiin Bey in the studio sharing his appreciation for the villian. So, how the in the world does a video series featuring Yasiin Bey paying tribute to DOOM go under the radar? — no idea. French blog Culturebox hosted Bey’s Beyondoom project from the latter of last year to this February. Within seven parts, he tackles some of DOOM’s notable tracks such as “All Caps”, “Beef Rap” and “Accordion”.
In other Yasiin news, you can find him on Twitter via the handle @CalledEarth, an account he shares along with Stop Being Famous owner Ferrari Sheppard which offers some great insight into what he’s digging and been up to lately. Apparently he’s been in the studio and having Earl Sweatshirt’s new album on repeat. Here are a few highlights:
