MC Paul Barman and MF DOOM are Paul Dooman

Some DOOM fans may rejoice to find they will no longer have to point out that the MC/producer did much more than "backpack" rap. The rapprovacateurs among us, however, may miss the opportunity to make a "real hip-hop" head's skin crawl. So, if ever you do want to make the argument that DOOM was the backpack rap GOAT you might consider that he did no fewer than eight songs with nerdcore pioneer Paul Barman. Just put this playlist on and watch the boom-bap set squirm! (The irony, of course, is that Barman can and does rap his ass off, a fact that wasn't lost on DOOM as he did more beats for Paul than just about anyone other than those select few rappers for whom he produced a full album.)
