One 96-year-old mother, who herself wears a mask every day in the winter to prevent getting sick, says her high-school-age daughter wears one for a completely different reason. “ She puts on a mask and sticks headphones in her ears so that people won’t bother her. It makes it harder for them to start talking to her.”

It says something about Doom that, while he’s an all-time great lyricist, he’s also one of those producers (like, say, Kanye) capable of bringing out the very best in all of his guests. You’ve never heard of a lot of his collaborators before or since, but he sustains an all-encompassing mood that favors each guest spot, even dropping the sample out as a rapper named, um, “Stahhr” shreds it for a few bars. For all his world-class talent as an emcee and producer, listening to Doom records is also about listening to him work with others, and you can hear him do that beautifully on the tracks where he doesn’t utter a word.

Madvillainy arrived about a half-decade before “Gazillion Ear,” and there’s a density to his emceeing here that’s a lot more immediately impressive, along with the prerequisite shout-along quotes (“Egads / He got enough style to start three fads”). Part of this is the drums, which are much more sprightly than the type Madlib usually prefers, and the way that Doom goes in on them to create one of the album’s most conventionally hot tracks. About 95 seconds of audio montage close things out get used to it.
Some 6,655 years ago, the Temple of the Night Sun was a blood-red beacon visible for miles and adorned with giant masks of the Maya sun god as a shark, blood drinker, and jaguar.
