One of our favorite new blogs is Stretch Armstrong's Konstant Kontakt, where Stretch posts the kind of lost and mostly impossible to find hip-hop demos and cassettes from the '80s and '90s that only he would have access to. Most (if not all) of these rarely heard songs were digitized from cassettes that Stretch compiled during the run of his legendary Stretch and Bobbito radio show in NYC. My favorite find thus far is this insane demo from a young MF Doom, recorded in the mid-'90s while Doom was staying at Stretch's house. Not sure how rare this really is, but I'd never heard it, so here y'all go:
MF Doom Elite Scooby Doo Shit
EDIT: Thanks to our friend Douglas Martin for pointing out that this demo appeared (in only slightly different form) as "Hey!" on MF Doom's 1999 solo debut, Operation: Doomsday.
Hit up Stretch's blog for more amazing stuff you've never heard before, including demos from Nas, Kool Keith, and more.
