If you've been following the careers of Ghostface Killah and DOOM, you've undoubtedly heard promises of a collaborative project. While Ghost is as prolific as ever these days, it's much harder to pin DOOM down (he's also been evading a follow-up to his underground classic with Madlib, Madvillainy). Somehow, the wonderful people at Adult Swim have managed to get the two rappers on a track together,even billing it as a DOOMSTARKS release.
Whether or not this leads to any further work between Ghost and DOOM is yet to be seen, but "Lively Hood" is everything we want from the pairing -- an equally menacing and cartoonish instrumental that brings out the most animated performances out of the two veterans.
Look out for more releases from the Adult Swim Singles series coming your way soon.
Thousands of skeletons found under ground zero
Hundreds of years old remains of the brown negro
Built on the back of immigrants
In search of a better life
And all they get is creditor stress, and debt or strife
