Since 2013, Boston rap duo 7L & Esoteric and Wu-Tang Clan member Inspectah Deck have been making explosive, action-packed albums inspired by comics and Saturday morning cartoons, loaded with sinister sound bites and funky, cinematic production. The project's namesake character, Czarface, is a superhero on a mission to save hip-hop, illustrated in Marvel-style graphics by New York-based artist Lamour Supreme. This concept isn't far off from the territory that MF Doom has been covering since the late '90s, so perhaps it was inevitable that the two parties would clash at some point.
