Over the years, talented West Coast artist/producer Grip Grand has worked with the likes of A.G., Phat Kat and Percee P and knocked out some fine indie releases (including 2008's Brokelore ). His latest endeavor, however, finds him paying homage to one of his favorite artists, MF Doom , via this beautifully executed remix project GG Doom! But How? pairs MF acapellas (via Viktor Vaughn recordings and other sources) with production so convincingly Doom-patible it's kind of uncanny. AND Kool G Grip's even created a nifty animated video for the track "Jive Turkeys." Listen, download and read more about the project, below.

gripgrand.com : 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 didn’t. So now they do. Enjoy.
