This one isn’t a prank, we swear.

We knew the rapper formerly-known-as Mos Def was a fan of MF Doom after that studio footage surfaced a few years back.

Now, the Brooklyn talent — who goes by Yasiin Bey — has linked up with Culturebox, France Télévisions’ “digital Art & Culture on demand service,” for Beyondoom, a video series that sees the MC covering a handful of Doom favorites. In true Doom fashion, he remains masked (until the very end).

Watch him cover ‘Beef Rap’, ‘Strange Ways’, ‘Accordion’, ‘Curls’, ‘All Caps’, ‘Rainbows / Fancy Clown / Fazers’ and ‘Mayo Clinic’ in the below playlist. Thanks to FACT contributor Laurent Fintoni for the tip.
