    WATCH: MF Doom – Red Bull Music Academy Lecture.

    Lecture: DOOM (Madrid 2011) from Red Bull Music Academy on Vimeo .

    As some of you may or may not know, ego trip's own Chairman Mao has been out in Madrid these past two weeks with the Red Bull Music Academy - hosting lectures, penning the occasional article for the RBMA website , hosting radio shows and gigging, and whatever else happens to come up. His latest act of content generating business is newly uploaded for your viewing pleasure: an in-depth, hour-and-a-half public conversation with that masked man of rap mystery, MF Doom . Bear witness as Doom discusses the early '80s episodes of Afrika Islam's "Zulu Beats" radio shows on WHBI, which would provide the inspiration for his signature audio collages. Listen as he explains the defining characteristics of his plethora of performance personas (Zev Love X, Doom, Viktor Vaughn, King Ghidra). Marvel as he dissects the makings of classic recordings such as KMD's Mr. Hood and Black Bastards , Operation: Doomsday , and his essential collab with Madlib, Madvillain's Madvillainy . Mystery, science, and theater - all in abundance when this Supervillain speaks.

      Mao says: thnx for the feedback. Sam: the room's dynamic changes every year depending on the available space. This year the host city design team had the chance to build a room from scratch & constructed a lecture hall that both looked & sounded great. Only thing was it could get hot as hell on the interview couch under the lights. I did my best not to perspire too much on the guests.
