Witchdoctor assembles his “Diary”

Witchdoctor’s return from hip-hop oblivion is one of the great comeback stories of the year. The Atlanta rapper was once a footnote in the Dungeon Family saga, having released a critically-acclaimed debut — 1998’s A S.W.A.T. Healin’ Ritual — that sold wood. But he then recorded a series of mystical, idiosyncratic albums, sold them through his MySpace page, and drew the attention of Williams Street Records, a by-product of Turner Entertainment’s Cartoon Network and cult favorite Adult Swim.

Now, Witchdoctor is dropping a new album, Diary of an American Witchdoctor, that collects prime cuts from his MySpace era. It drops October 9. And he’ll hit college campuses for a brief tour in look of those brain-fried Adult Swim fans. He’ll have some help, including headliner and chief rocker Ghostface Killah and fellow Dungeon Family alum Khujo Goodie (who self-released his Mercury album with Koch Distribution in July).
