MF Doom, the man behind the mask, the supervillain, he works with mice, Madlib and more besides. A true underground legend who has ended up with shoes bearing his logo on every major high street in the UK. It still suprises me to see Doom in the shop window of Clarks. I mean what the f....
So Operation Doomsday, this is superb. Doom, previously seen as part of KMD, appeared as the masked man on this self produced album that initially seemed to pass under the radar. Issued in relatively small numbers and repressed again in batches intermittently it gradually gathered a wider audience as more and more were turned on to the innivative use of samples, off kilter but always on point and funky breaks but most of all that flow. Tall tales, bravado and nonsense rolled into one character portrayed throughout as an antihero for hip hop times. About 1000 times more interesting than your fiddy's ever were.
If you don't already have this, buy it, it is a genuine LP that everyone into hip hop should own. Just hoping the long awaited Madvillainy 2 comes soon.
