JJ DOOM – “Bookhead” Video Directed by Steve “ESPO” Powers
The collaborative effort between Jneiro Jarel and DOOM, JJ DOOM return on an unreleased number titled “Bookhead.” This new joint comes as their first production together since 2012′s Key to Kuffs. Directed by iconic street artist and all-round creative persona Steve “ESPO” Powers, the psychologically elevating visuals show the rapper have his trademark mask replaced with a reflective mirror, while cavorting around in a local grocery store and library. Thumbing away through a list of readings, the left-field linguist’s flips through a synonym dictionary before moving on to Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. Meanwhile Jarel lines the track with a hazy, broken-beat instrumental before toning it down with far-out samples and distant subs, hosting perfect stomping ground for MF DOOM‘s raspy lyrics.
