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 (4)

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.

KMD – Black Bastards – Deluxe Vinyl

IN THE SHOP: KMD – BLACK BASTARDS – 2LP VINYL

Picture disc, Red Vinyl, Pop-up Gatefold Sleeve, 32p Booklet.

MF DOOM’s first group and their controversial sophomore release Black Bastards (Bl_ck B_st_rds) is being reissued by DOOM’s own Metalface Records imprint on vinyl.

This includes a popup gatefold sleeve, 32p. booklet with liner notes, and two 12-inch records – one picture disc with the group’s iconic “sambo” mascot, and one red vinyl.

In Brian Coleman’s recent book Check the Technique, he wrote extensively about the album and it’s critical role in shaping the persona of MF DOOM: “There are few releases in hip-hop history with as much mystery behind them as KMD’s second full-length, Black Bastards. The album, whose cover boldly depicted a cartoon ‘Sambo’ being hanged, didn’t even receive the insult of being shelved or pushed back by Elektra Records upon its completion in 1994. Instead, it was outright refused, with very little above-board explanation as to the reason, or even much of an apology, as they ushered the group’s leader out the door.”
