FRI JAN 29th – DOOM featuring MOS DEF @ CONGRESS THEATER – Chicago


Ten years ago, Daniel Denile created his hip hop moniker MF DOOM
and released his first full length release Operation: Doomsday. Since
then the artist and producer has evolved into one of hiphop’s most
conceptually creative artists and lyricists of the past decade. DOOM
(whose hip hop moniker was inspired by Marvel Comics supervillian
Doctor Doom) soon gained mainstream recognition through
successful collaborations with other innovative hip hop artists. In
2004, his Madvillain project with Madlib on the release of Madvillainy
lead to commercial success and was well received by the national
media. His next collaboration with Danger Mouse in 2005 as Danger
Doom on The Mouse of The Mask continued his growing influence in
the hip hop community. In 2009 he released his fourth solo album Born
Like This as DOOM. The album features vocals from Ghostface &
Raekwon, production by J.Dilla and an upcoming EP featuring official
remixes of “Gazzillion Ears” by artists including Thom Yorke and Kanye

Last year influential hip hop artist Mos Def publicly praised DOOM on
his lyrical and musical talent through various video interviews for hip
hop press. No stranger to the underground hip hop scene himself, his
debut collaboration with Talib Kweli as Black Star and the release of
his seminal debut Black on Both Sides put him instantly on the hip
hop map. A decade later, Mos Def released his fourth studio album
The Ecstatic in 2009. The album debuted at #9 on the Billboard charts
and is nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.

DOOM and Mos Def have recently announced three North American
tour dates together including a date in Chicago at the Congress Theater
on Friday, January 29, 2010. Check out the official preview remix from
the upcoming “Gazzilion Ears” EP release and for more info on the event
