MF Doom Artist Snapshot:

One half of the short-lived yet influential Long Island, NY rap duo K.M.D., MF Doom, then Zevlove X, was m.i.a. for several years following the tragic death of his brother (K.M.D. DJ Sub Roc) in 1993. Doom reemerged in the early 2000s as an MC possessed; virulently independent and underground, Doom, aka Daniel Dumile, released a plethora of albums under various noms de plume including Victor Vaughn, Metal Fingers, and King Geedorah and collaborated with Danger Mouse (as Danger Doom), and Mad Lib (as Mad Villain). A singular dedication to his art combined with a manic creativity marks MF Doom as one of the most important hip-hop artists of the form's third decade.

Product Notes

Underneath his mysterious metal mask, MF Doom hides the cachet underground legends are made of. After KMD's 1994 sophomore album Black Bastards was turfed by Elektra in 1994 and Subroc (one half of the sibling rhyme duo) passed away, surviving KMD member Zev Love X mutated into the MC Avenger known as MF Doom. The rap world is better for it. This 19-cut, deep LP is ridiculously dope, in a bizarro Ol' Dirty Bastard kind of way. Doom sounds either high or drunk on most of the tracks, his self-produced beats are gritty, and his rhyme styles are almost indecipherable. On arguably the best track, "Rhymes Like Dimes," Doom weaves some pointed lyrics through his abstract wordplay, spitting "only in America could you find a way to earn a healthy buck / And still keep your attitude on self-destruct." Doomsday features female vocalist Pebbles the Invisible accompanying the masked rhyme avenger on his journey to denounce wack MCs, while on "?" he trades hot verses with former Columbia artist Kurious. Doom's avant-garde ghetto-rhyme philosophies take even more intentionally weird twists on "Tick, Tick..." where he and guest MC MF Grimm's flows warble over a rhythm track whose tempo speeds up and slows down continually. The comic-book themed skits, many of which include snippets of dialogue from Marvel's Dr. Doom series, will help take you deep into the mind of an MC who is as otherworldly as they come. And in today's bland commercial rap universe, Operation Doomsday's left-of-center beats and rhymes are the perfect remedy. --Dalton Higgins
