[Album Stream] Listen to JJ Doom's 'Butter Edition' of 'Keys to the Kuffs', Including Remixes from Clams Casino, Thom Yorke and Beck

Refresher: JJ Doom = MF Doom and Jneiro Jarel. Last year, they released the fantastic Keys to the Kuffs, a collaboration that paired Doom's bizarre lyricism and Jarel's dark, outlandish production. Exactly one year later, on August 20th, Lex Records will be releasing the "Butter Edition" of the album, featuring reworked versions of tracks, new guest verses (including Del the Funky Homosapien) as well as remixes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Clams Casino, Beck and Dave Sitek. Stream the whole album below and pre-order it here.

[Watch] JJ DOOM - "Guv'nor" (Official Video)

The just-released Keys To The Kuffs, the collaborative album between Jneiro Jarel and DOOM, now has its first official video, and in rare form it's DOOM taking up all the screen time. The video for "Guv'nor" sees DOOM smashing chairs, riding a BMX, and spending way too much time in a vacant warehouse, but the most interesting thing about the video is how it was shot. Using a mirror-image film style, the video makes DOOM's rather mundane movements and actions seem way more exciting and trippy. Watch it above.

JJ DOOM's Keys To The Kuffs is out now via Lex Records.

Now i'm sure that along with the other 2 previous tracks "Banished" and "GUV'NOR" should be more than enough to hold you over til the release of the JJ DOOM album. If not, you greedy bastard, you'll have to wait until the album is released next week.

[Listen] JJ Doom - "GUV'NOR"

Earlier this year, we got our first taste of JJ Doom, the collaboration between the masked menace MF Doom and rapper Jneiro Jarel, with the song "Banished". The song is set to feature on the pair's collaborative LP Key to the Kuff, which is set to drop next month, and now we have another cut from the soon-to-be-released long play. "GUV'NOR" offers solid delivery from Jarel and fantastic instrumentals from MF Doom, although if you know what to expect from Doom then there won't be many surprises here. Still, it's a great track. Stream it below.

Key to the Kuff is out on August 21st via Lex Records.
