Doom - Born Into This [LP & CD]

Not an album I am interested in, but I see there's been some discussions about the upcoming release I posted about and the authenticity of my posts. Yes, I am the General Manager of a music one-stop (distributor) and have access to official release information directly from the label and/or their exclusive distributors. Nothing I post is based on speculation, or info. from any non-official source (including Wikipedia, Tipsheet, someone's blog etc.)

For more information on the Doom release, here's is the official one-sheet from Lex Records (yes, I added the watermark in the background):

Lex Records is proud to deliver "Born Into This" the latest project in DOOM's illustrious career. It's his first full length solo project in four years and is filled with superstar guests including production from J Dilla, Dangermouse and guests Me's Ghostface and Raekwon.
