Roll Call :: Coolzey And Co. Wrap Up VPC6 Contest With ‘Bring Out Your Nerd’ Posse Cut


Not too long ago, the homie Coolzey hit me up with an interesting proposition… 8 bars for a posse cut to help him lock down the final round for a contest known as VPC6, where Coolzey did multiple rounds of songwriting in hopes of achieving victory.  For the final round, Coolzey called in some big guns : A Billi FreeChris CondeLil LavedyIce Tha OneMC AnimosityiMPERFEKTBeefy and myself (Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice) all turned in 8 bars to help make Bring Out Your Nerd a reality.  The end result is dope, and I’m personally proud of my verse, which is comprised solely of movie titles (almost all of which I own physical copies of).  Check out the track, and leave a vote to help Coolzey achieve victory!


Joyful Noise :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Audio-Visual For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’

It feels good starting off 2020 on the right foot.  After a collaborative year with K Death of the iconic duo Moodie Black (a year in which she produced projects for several underground Texas juggernauts), I am happy to announce the release of Panic Ruminations on January 24.  In order to properly support the roll-out, I hooked up with the homie Jeffrey Garcia from the Dream-Atomic camp, and he helped me capture footage for the limit is mythic, the lead single from the upcoming project.  Check it out, leave a like and a comment, share it around so we can get those view counts up, and stay tuned for the release of the full project.


Warning Shot :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Collabs With Moodie Black For ‘The Limit Is Mythic’


Many years ago, I played a show with Moodie Black at the now defunct Triple Crown, and I was blown away by their performance.  Sean‘s love for guitar definitely shone on top of K‘s mind-blowing production, and her performances were powerful and captivating.  Over the years I got to know the duo better, even toured with them, leading to a friendship between and myself.  As made plans to grow Moodie Black and the umbrella moves she was making under Moodhouse, she began to offer deals on production, any many emcees (including myself) jumped on the opportunity.  Cut to present day, and a Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice EP written by myself and produced entirely by K is in the chamber.  The first single, the limit is mythic, is just a small taste of what’s in store, so definitely keep your eyes and ears open for the release of Panic Ruminations in January.


Critical Acclaim :: ChiefDoomsday Waxes Intellectual On Film In 2019


For those unaware, this is one of two blogs that I actively moderate and maintain.  The other is my film blog, the passion project that is DOOMonFILMAfter signing up for the brief dream-fulfilling program that was Moviepass in December of 2017, I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to begin not only sharing my thoughts on movies from the past, but actively reviewing new releases as they premiered.  This project has turned into a full-blown dedicated journey, with 475 entries to date (and counting).  In hopes of keeping a tradition going, I release a year-end list with honorable mentions, films I consider top 10 worthy, and an official list of the 10 films that had the biggest impact on me as a viewer.  Check it out, follow my film blog if you’re in to that sort of thing, and enjoy your 2020!


Fair Times :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops Visual For ‘Bee Drowns In The Honey’

What do you do when you’re schedule to play the silent disco at Hill Country Fair VI, but you don’t want to wait until midnight to go out to the festival?  If you’re Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, you drag some camera equipment out with you and go impromptu style on collecting moments.  Then you montage those moments over Bee Drowns In The Honey, your favorite song off of your latest release, Day For Night.  Then you share it with the world.  Enjoy!


Background Action :: JPEGMAFIA’s ‘Free The Frail’ Now Streaming In Video Form

JPEGMAFIA‘s 2019 release, All My Heroes Are Cornballs, has continued to be a strong contender for album of the year, and after dropping a more traditional style music video for Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot, it appears that he decided to flip the script with Free The Frail.  This one is not afraid to show touches of production elements, which helps ground the extremely emotional and honest lyrics that float through the production that somehow manages to coexist as both ethereal and heavy.  The production took place in Austin, and if you keep your eyes open, you are likely to see a familiar face in the video (one that, at one point, had a hard time staying on their feet).  Check out the video, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others, as it is a moving one.
