DOOM - Born Like This (2009)
This afternoon, further information was provided on the first studio release in years from Hip Hop veteran emcee and producer MF DOOM. Released on U.K. imprint Lex Records, BORN LIKE THIS is the latest of the onetime KMD leader's catalog, spanning work with Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. 

The work, recorded over the last three years, features the single "Ballskin", produced by Rhymesayers affiliate Jake One. The album reportedly also features some production from J Dilla, familiar to fans of his 2006 Donuts release. 

Inspired by 1960s and '70s poet Charles Bukowski, DOOM samples a performance by the man on "Cellz." Previously, DOOM used Bukowski for a vocal interlude on 2004's "One Beer." 

Due this spring, label reps are already claiming that the New York born veteran is planning other releases in 2009. DOOM's new label has informed everyone of his name change. Apparently the Metal Fingerz/Metal Face (MF) prefix will be dropped in favor of the name DOOM--still in all caps.
