JJ DOOM cover art Steve Powers "ESPO"

Refreshed from a long hiatus, the man in the mask with help from partner-in-crime, Jneiro Jarel is releasing a new project via Lex Records, titled JJ Doom. The first single titled “Guv’nor,” setting the tone for the album that is set for a digital and CD release on August 21st and on vinyl September 18th. For those who aren’t familiar with Jneiro Jarel, he’s an abstract beatmaker hailing from Philly who’s collaborated with the likes of Damon Albarn, Count Bass D, and TV on the Radio. To get an idea of what to expect on the production side of JJ DOOM, you can check of Jneiro’s beat tape under his alias Dr. Who Dat?—Beat Journey. Listen to the JJ Doom single “Guv’nor” below and make sure to take a look at Frank 151‘s newly released history lesson on Doom’s classic metal face mask created by Blake Lethem (aka KEO or SCOTCH 79).
