DESCRIPTION
It's been almost four years since the last original MF Doom project,the one which introduced him to a huge mainstream audience back in 2005 with Dangerdoom! Epitaph Records paired the alternatively appealing emcee with DJ/Producer Danger Mouse (also a rising star at the time from his infamous Grey Album) and was backed in thanks to Cartoon Network's late night programming on Adult Swim. These super duos seemed to be the logical step for Doom to take, as he had previously joined with Madlib as Madvillainy. So while it's not the long rumored GhostDoom that we all were waiting for... it's at least a start! This long awaited and highly anticipated follow up to anything from the mysterious artist now sees him drop the MF and is simply DOOM. Born Like This shows that all the alter egos and masks in the world can't hide his true identity, and if there's one thing that keeps people on the edge of anticipation with DOOM, it's the original hip hop he manages to bring us. With the exception of the J-Dilla produced ''Lightworks'' from Donuts, and the highly circulated ''Angelz'' with Ghostface, 16 tracks here are brand spanking new, with production handled almost entirely by DOOM himself and only one other by Jake One plus additional guest appearances by Raekwon and longtime friend Kurious. Squash all the rumors, DOOM is alive and well...and yes, it's kind of hard not to mention all those impostor performances and no-shows...but did it really stop enough of us from continuing to enjoy his music, or was he really just living up to the genius of his villainous persona? Only time will tell.

Born Like This, March 23, 2009
By: CaptainStfu - See all my reviews

Born Like this is a classic doom album it's an easy refresher but somewhat disappointing, it's just too average for a highly anticipated album I was expecting somemore collabs and longer tracks. Though you can fell back at home with doom's more comedic tracks like Batty Boyz but still it's a decent album not too bad and not good also hope we see more pretty soon
