Lex Records presents 'KEY TO THE KUFFS', the debut collaborative album from MF DOOM and Jneiro Jarel (aka Shape of Broad Minds/ Dr. Who Dat?) under the moniker JJ DOOM.

"On paper, a full collaborative album from NYC's notorious rap villain DOOM and space age production from Jneiro Jarel can't fail. In practice it's even better. DOOM is in the form of his life here."
-Mojo Magazine

JJ produced all the tracks, DOOM provided the bulk of the vocals and compiled the cut and paste skits.

"With this dude, the way his production is, these songs are on a different level."
-DOOM discusses JJ in Bonafide Magazine

The album will appeal to fans of classic DOOM material. JJ's tough, far out hip hop production will appeal to fans of J Dilla, Flying Lotus and El-P. "KEY TO THE KUFFS' features guest appearances from Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Damon Albarn (Gorillaz) and Khujo (Goodie Mob). Tracks from the album have already been remixed by Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead) and Dave Sitek. Album artwork is by graffiti artist Steve Powers aka ESPO.

The album follows DOOM's 2009 solo album 'BORN LIKE THIS' (Lex). JJ's recent production work includes three tracks on Damon Albarn's DRC Music album 'Kinshasa One Two' (Warp). JJ previously remixed DOOM twice on DOOM's 'GAZILLION EAR EP' (Lex) and they recorded together on JJ's Shape of Broad Minds album 'CRAFT OF THE LOST ART' (Lex).

Listeners are also saying it's a masterpiece, with a few unfavourable tracks.

Anyone checking? Winter Blues is nice.

    Yo that 🤬 was out of nowhere...
    🤬 geeked like a 🤬 when I saw it on Itunes...lol
    I'm waiting for a chance to just sit back and listen... I always say his newest album is wack on first listen but then it becomes my favorite later on.

    Ok ive listened to the albums a couple of times.

    Good album. Didnt grab me like MM Food, Doomsday, Madvillain did. but its a good listen for any DOOM fan. cant remember how you spell his name, but JJ (producer) is different from any beats we've heard DOOM on. Sounds more... spacey, if ya know what i mean. Cant say he goes well with doom on a few songs. but other songs like Winter Blues they come together perfectly imo.

    Will make myself listen to this more, so far fave songs are:
