On Halloween 2020, the world lost one oof the most singularly talented MCs in music history: MF Doom. Starting with his groundbreaking work with KMD, all the way back in the late 1980s. It's really hard to say that MF Doom was ahead of his time, because we're not sure that times will ever catch up with him. But because of his secretive brand and his often obscure releases, there are plenty of music fans who don't know where to start with his catalogue. We're going to bring you some key tracks from Doom, and we're going to shine a light on an artist who should be recognized as an all-time great.

We'll also hear a track from St. Paul's Taylor J Takeover ahead of his album dropping this Friday, Still Ballin.
