MF DOOM is back with the second track, “True Lightyears,” from his 15-song Adult Swim project Missing Book of Rhymes, and this one packs a special surprise. Not only is Jay Electronica featured on the track, but it’s also the first offering from a brand new upcoming KMD album called Crack in Time set to be released through Metalface/Nature Sounds. The beat sounds like something out of DOOM’s old Special Herbs and Spices collection, while Jay Elect handles the first verse before MF comes in for the second.
The new flavor for this week is called “True Lightyears” and, if it sounds like it’s a bit of a trip to listen to, well that’s because it is. The psychedelic beat that features some flute samples that act as accents puts the lyricists in an a spacey, non-human space where they rip some off some really well-crafted rhymes. Jay is up first, getting on some wordy prose before DOOM wades in on the second verse and closes things out in style. It’s quite an experience to hear two emcees go to town over a track that could’ve easily found a home in Ken Kesey’s LSD companion listening collection – if hip- hop had been big back then of course.
