This one should please all the pessimistic hip-hop heads out there. After a year-plus of talk that the prolific pairing of producer MF Doom and Masta Ace would be dropping a joint LP together, fans finally have their first glimmer of hope the project will actually happen. The official single from MA_Doom: Son of Yvonne is called “Slow Down” and delivers exactly what most would’ve hoped from the duo. Bringing his visionary sense of lyricism to Doom’s flute-infested sampling and stuttered drums, the Brooklyn MC weaves listeners in and out of a trippy tale about how susceptible even the sharpest men can be when pretty girls use their looks to leave you shook.
The moral of the story? Watch out for roofies and keep your fingers crossed the rest of their project sounds this timeless, when it supposedly drops this summer.
