MF Doom - Gas Drawls ('94 Demo)

From the 12/15/94 episode of The Stretch Armstrong Show. This early version of "Gas Drawls" has Doom rocking a cadence similar to what he was doing in KMD. 1994 was the year Elektra canned Black Bastards due to the album-art controversy; Doom wouldn't officially drop a version of this track until 1997, by which time he was spitting with a deeper, hazier flow. Really interesting to hear this piece of the puzzle regarding the transition from KMD to MF Doom.
