WESTSIDEDOOM’s “2Stings” Feels Like the Start of the Apocalypse

When Westside Gunn and DOOM announced that they were joining forces to drop an album together as WESTSIDEDOOM, of course the anticipation was high. And then word of Alchemist’s involvement on production took it to a whole other level.

Gorilla Monsoon,” the duo’s first released track, was produced by Griselda Records mainstay Daringer, but today the duo released “2Stings,” giving the first taste of what Alchemist has cooked up. The song also rightfully feels like eerie start of the apocalypse.

Cramming the last four decades of rap into a single three-minute song. “2Stings” has everything from shrill bells to Biz Markie samples reverberating within Alchemist’s droning, muffled drums. Within that rumble, DOOM and Westside are licking their chops. “Master schemer, expert in that arena/ Puffing Pasadena, you read the grass was greener/ Black Beemer, i-8/ She gyrate, ” raps DOOM. Gunn ups the ante when he takes the mic, rhyming about placing “a price on ya baby mama’s head,” and shooting uzis out of car windows like he’s reimagining Max Payne. “Pistol whip a nigga, left his whole head twisted,” Gunn boasts when the beat momentarily gives out.

Few details are known about the WESTSIDEDOOM album, but “2Sting” and “Gorilla Monsoon,” might be all the enticement anyone needs.
