90 minutes of music and interviewing one of the best lyricists there is, via the Red Bull Academy Lecture series.
The interview with DOOM is slow in places, but features many tracks played in real time. DOOM talks about everything from the death of his brother, to the reasoning behind his multiple personas, to why the interesting hip hop records are the ones that you have to decipher, to how Rhinestone Cowboy was done to fill out MM Food, to the message behind the mask partly being the desire to have the music (sound) be the selling point. He talks about his recording process and tools, working with people like Bobbito and 3rd Bass and wanting to work with Kanye in the future. Also, about how creativity for him is like a wave, or an energy stream. He says Madvillainy 2 will be out soon, that he'll be done with his part by January.
