He wears a mask so when he dogs his face
Each and every race, could absorb the bass
DOOM explains this line in an interview:
A particular rhyme from “Ballskin” (“He wears a mask so when he dons his face / Each and every race, could absorb the bass”) reminded me of musicians like Sun Ra and P-Funk who said they were aliens, which some people thought was because being aliens meant you could live among the human race without having to deal with racial politics. Is that why DOOM wears the mask? (If not, can you clarify what the line means?)
It’s “dogs his face.” It means when his face is distorted, you will pay attention to the music.
