adidas Originals caught up with the one and only MF DOOM as part of its ongoing All Interview series. Instead of beats and rhymes, the topic of conversation is art and graffiti, with the former Zev Love X picking up some spray cans and bombing a wall in London.
The “All Caps” rapper recounted how he used plan hitting up walls during his KMD days. “I haven’t done pieces in mad long,” says DOOM. “The way it goes is like this. First, we’s do a stake out. We’d stake it out, look at the size of the wall and all that. Maybe days and weeks before. Then, we’d do a sketch in a book. Or go through the book and see which sketch is going to fit on that wall. The brain is complex but it’s not too tricky to overstand once you get the gist of it.”
The clip is worth watching just to hear DOOM talk about the left brain, the right brain and exercising the corpus callosum.
DOOM’s finished piece is at the Shoreditch Art Wall at 17-19 Great Eastern Street in London. Check out how it went down in the video below.
