The surprise joint album features appearances from Del The Funky Homosapien, Kendra Morris, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and more.
Marking DOOM’s first official posthumous release since the announcement of his death on New Years Eve 2020, Super What? is a ten-track joint project with the venerable supergroup (consisting of Esoteric, DJ 7L, and Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck,) featuring contributions from Del The Funky Homosapien, Kendra Morris, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and more.
The cover art for the album was shared by Esoteric on Wednesday, unveiling the face of the project along with its incoming drop date and some details on how the album was recorded. “Super What? was recorded and slated to drop in April of 2020. When COVID-19 struck and the world stopped, we chose to pull it, focus on family, and fine tune a few elements on it,” Esoteric wrote on Instagram, going on to note the project was finalized, mixed, and mastered, in summer of 2020. “I speak for everyone involved when I say we were incredibly fortunate to have collaborated with DOOM…he was a one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-duplicated emcee, producer, and visionary. We wish peace and healing to his family, friends and everyone touched by the gifts he shared with the planet,” Eso added in the post.
Super What? is the second collaborative album between Czarface and MF DOOM, following their 2018 project, Czarface Meets MF DOOM. And fans are already rallying behind it. This morning, an outpouring of appreciation on social media sent DOOM to the top of Twitter’s trending tab.
