MF Doom And Ghostface Killah Cassette Collaboration

As part of MF Doom's nailed shut "mystery" crate collaboration with clothing brand Akomplice (which was supplied with its own crowbar), Doom and Ghostface Killah have released a red cassette remix single under the name Doom/Starks. The track, "Victory Laps", is remixed by Madvillian, with an original version and instrumentals scheduled for release on 26 July.

A full length collaboration between Doom and Ghostface has been reported as being in the works for a long time, but Nature Sounds's Devin Horwitz told XXL earlier this week that the pair have "regrouped this year, and [have] really started fine tuning... trying to hone it in, to make this thing a reality". Horwitz also said that the album is almost complete, with the majority of the direction coming from Doom.

The Doom/Starks cassette is available via Nature Sounds. More info here.
