"GG DOOM... BUT HOW?" - Grip Grand Remixes MF DOOM
Courtesy Routine Fly.
As a tribute to one of his major influences, Grip Grand went into a studio with a bunch of MF DOOM acapellas and 1.5 tons of vinyl. The result is this EP, which plays like it was produced, if not by DOOM himself, then definitely by a DOOMbot. This is what these songs should have sounded like in the first place, full of melodic, lo-fi loops and intricate audio collage. But they didnít. So now they do. Enjoy.

With the fifth and final leak before Marco Polo drops his highly-anticipated free-LP, Newport Authority 2, Marco states "I did a remix for "Stand Up" off the brand new Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics project (who am I big fan of, y'all should cop anything he's a part of.) Adrian sent me the album early and I made this beat. Tragedy was originally gonna lay down one verse on this on some freestyle sh*t, but once I started hearing his bars I refused to let this be a one verse song! Three verses later and appropriate hook by Slap aka Fizzy Womack aka Lil Fame we have the "Stand Up" remix. Tragedy will have an alternate version of this song on his upcoming album as well. Now please enjoy the final leak from Newport Authority 2!"
