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.
