Underneath his mysterious metal mask, MF DOOM hides the cachet underground legends are made of. After KMD (his first group)‰۪s 1994 sophomore album Bl_ck B_st_rds was shelved by Elektra in 1994 and his blood brother Subroc (one half of the sibling rap duo) passed away, surviving frontman Zev Love X mutated into the MC Avenger known as MF DOOM and the Rap world is better for it. This 19-cut deep album 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, ‰ÛÏRhymes Like Dimes,‰۝ Doom weaves some pointed lyrics through his abstract wordplay, spitting ‰Û÷only in America could you find a way to earn a healthy buck / And still keep your attitude on self-destruct.‰۪ Who You Think I Am? features DOOM‰Û÷s crew M.onster I.sland C.zars, while on ‰ÛÏ?‰۝ he trades hot verses with former Columbia artist Kurious Jorge. Doom‰۪s avant-garde ghetto-rhyme philosophies take even more intentionally weird twists on ‰ÛÏTick, 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, 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
