In a moment of clarity, Jay-Z might wanna rhyme like Common Sense, but nobody, even with generous charity, can rhyme quite like wordplayer MF DOOM, né Zev Love X. Like Nas and “Live at the BBQ,” every great MC has a celebrated debut, and Zev Love represents on 3rd Bass’s “The Gas Face,” 1989. (more…)

MF DOOM – Operation Doomsday – Red & Black Vinyl

MF DOOM — July 25, 2016 | Comments (3)

ON SALE OPERATION DOOMSDAY (RED/BLK 2/LP, POSTER, FONDLE ‘EM COVER)
ON SALE: OPERATION DOOMSDAY (RED/BLK 2/LP, POSTER, METALFACE COVER)

Update: 1,000 pieces of each, now SOLD OUT

If you are one of the few who have known about MF DOOM’s debut album since the year it first dropped, you’ll know there’s been a few versions of the album to come out. There’s been bonus tracks, bootlegs, CDs, tapes, and even a lunch box edition.

But here’s the thing about Operation Doomsday: It’s a hip-hop classic. Those who don’t have it, need it. The record keeps selling out, and they keep making more. Just like The Beatles, if the Beatles came to destroy rap.

The album originally came out in ’99 on Fondle ‘Em Records. In 2011, Doom’s own label Metalface Records began officially reissuing the album. In that year, a new cover was made, featuring art and design by Jason Jagel & Jeff Jank, who also handled Doom’s MM FOOD. Both editions of Doomsday are now being released on vinyl, each with 2/LP red & black vinyl, and a 18 x 24-inch poster.

“Gas Drawls” video: Animator Dustooned created a video for “Gas Drawls,” taking inspiration from Doom’s album artwork, including much of Jason Jason illustrations for MM Food and the Metalface version of Operation Doomsday. The animation was created independently, and got the Doom stamp of approval just last week.
