DOOM and Ghostface Killah Single To Drop Next Week?
It seems that we may be finally seeing the beginning phases of the release for the collaborative album.
Yesterday, Brooklyn-based label Nature Sounds took to Twitter to drop some hints about the long-anticipated collaborative album from rappers (MF) DOOM and Ghostface Killah. The project, that has supposedly been in the works for years, now appears to be coming to fruition, based on the comments from the imprint.
“I promise there will be a #DOOMSTARKS sighting in one weeks time,” the label posted on their Twitter last night.
The comment, although not confirmed as of press time, appears to be referencing to the highly-anticipated collaborative album from DOOM and Wu-Tang Clan member, Ghostface Killah, which was previously said to be titled Swift & Changeable. This announcement is the latest in what has been a long and storied adventure for the collaborative work, which was originally revealed to be in the works in 2006 and slated for a release in 2007.
Since this initial announcement, fans have clamored for the effort to finally see the light of day, but to no avail. Both rappers — as well as the Nature Sounds imprint — have been consistently vague on the project, with details and timelines changing repeatedly over the course of the last few years.
Fan were delighted, however, to get a preview for the effort in 2009. On DOOM’s most-recent solo effort, Born Like This, the track “Angelz” featured Ghostface Killah, which was later revealed to be a part of their larger collaborative work.
DoomStarks appears to be the official collaborative moniker of the two artists, a name that DOOM used for the record in a 2007 video with Just V-D-B blog.
While no release date is announced at this time, it does seem likely that if the label is preparing to release the record’s first single, that we could see an official album announcement in the very near future.
For the latest on the DoomStarks project, stay tuned. More information will be published as it become available.
