Hear Kool Keith, MF DOOM Take Flight on Spacey ‘Super Hero’
Kool Keith has tapped MF DOOM for a dusty, spaced-out new track, “Super Hero,” packed with surreal braggadocio and plenty of comic book references.
The cut will appear on Keith’s upcoming LP Feature Magnetic and boasts sparse production anchored by a relentless cymbal splash and gurgling bass. Keith spits first with a wild verse that touches on everything from his Wikipedia page to Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, and finds the rapper fittingly inserting himself into the Marvel canon: “I come from a place where superheroes meet up / The X-Men drinking tea watching chicks with D-cups / Spiderman saw Doctor Oct spittin on top of a New York City bus.”

DOOM meanwhile weaves a fantastical verse that name checks Spiderman, John Travolta, the rapper’s signature Clarks Wallabies, Teen Titans and Hello Kitty before the masked MC closes with the well-earned kiss off, “Until next rhyme, y’all, Excelsior!”
“Super Hero” is available to download for free via Kool Keith’s BandCamp, where album cuts “World Wide Lamper” with B.A.R.S. Murre and Dirt Nasty and “Tired” featuring Edo.G can be streamed. Feature Magnetic arrives on September 16th.
