The Mask and the Mustache

very nice!

If you like inexplicable collaborations between masked MCs and fictional characters well, dear friends, I have a treat for you. Please welcome MF Borat, the surprisingly slick duo comprised of MF Doom and Sascha Baron Cohen as everyone’s favorite Kazakhstan superstar. According to their inter-tube domicile:

Now it all makes sense.
In 2006, during a stint out west to promote his then new movie, Sacha Cohen, (aka Borat) met Daniel Dumile, better known as Zev Love X, or MF DOOM. Their blazing freestyle ciphers and mutual love of Purple Kush led to an impromptu recording of Doom’s ‘My Favorite Ladies’ verses (see Herbalisers’ Something Wicked…album) over a beat Borat had made back in ’05 with Kulki Boolchek, a Khazak producer. Later that year Doom ventured east, and recorded three more gems with Cohen at the castle of Rudolf II in Prague, renowned for its stone acoustics. DigDug bought the master off a based-out gypsy in East Oakland and the rest is history! **Please FREELY DOWNLOAD THESE GEMS**, as they have been labeled ‘Degenerate Music’ by the Putin administration and the whole album is banned in the greater East. Censorship will never extinguish true heat!

I don’t understand it, I don’t care. While Doom can sometimes stretch himself a little too thin on some of his releases, he’s on point here. The beats represent just as well, filled with slick quality funk and soul samples you expect from a Stones Throw affiliate, and some very nice vocal samps from Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross to seal the deal. So, thank god you live in the Land of the Free, and pick up the free EP The Mask and the Mustache below.
