Born Like This is an album by American hip hop artist Daniel Dumile, released under the pseudonym DOOM on Lex Records on March 24, 2009. It debuted at #52 on the Billboard Chart, having sold 10,895 copies as of March 29, 2009. In addition to tracks produced by Doom, the album includes production by frequent collaborator Madlib, as well as J Dilla. The album title is borrowed from Charles Bukowski's poem, "Dinosauria, We," which employs it as a cadence. A reading of the poem by Bukowski himself is in the beginning part of the track "Cellz." It is an aggressive album that follows a loose storyline, and its lyricism involves verbal braggadocio, social commentary on police brutality and the ghetto condition. Pitchfork Media included Born Like This in their best albums of 2009, placing it at #48.
