Fuck off this is top 3 DOOM albums

the production, handled mostly by j dilla and madlib, is great, as per usual, doom has a great rhyme scheme and flow.

dont let this album go under your radar!!

favorites: gazillion ear, ballskin, absolutely, lightworks, batty boyz, angelz, still dope, microwce mayo, thats that, supervillainz, thank ya

meh: rap ambush, cellz

least favorites: yessir, more rhymin, bumpys message
