As the 1990s came to a close, a man who would come to rule the underground hip-hop universe for the next two decades appeared from depths that were darker than most of his fans would ever know: MF DOOM. The artist formerly known as Zev Love X of major-label-but-underground heroes KMD had disappeared from most fans’ view in around 1994 – after his brother and artistic co-producer Subroc was killed, and the group’s Black Bastards album was shelved by Elektra. By 1999 the album Operation: Doomsday appeared seemingly out of nowhere via Fondle Em Records, and fans who actively ran from the glitzier side of rap music ate it up like they had been on a hunger strike. Musically raw and at-times off-kilter, former singles were joined by a whole slew of new tunes. In addition to the dusty, wobbling music, the former Zev Love X completely changed up his vocal style on the tracks that would land on Doomsday, chopping his flow up and bringing a whole new approach to his formerly liquid, and often humorous lyricism.
This new 7-Inch Collection edition includes seven 7-Inches that run in order of the songs from the original issue (including interludes). The records are housed in a custom black leatherette outer-box that is laced with silver-foil renderings of DOOM’s legendary mask and bubble graffiti logo on the outside, and a never-seen-before DOOM drawing by the legendary Lord Scotch, the original artist behind the Operation: Doomsday art, on the inside. In addition to holding the 7-inch vinyl, the box also contains two metallic-silver colored 45 adapters, each a 3D rendering of DOOM’s gladiator mask. Picture sleeves for each of the seven pieces of wax all feature brand new work by Lord Scotch(aka KEO aka Scotch79th) as well: new hand-lettered track listings on one side, and incredible new color illustrations on the flip that, when laid side-by-side, fit together like puzzle pieces, to form one large image.
Each seven-inch comes in a unique vinyl color: Purple Transparent, Red Transparent, Lime Green Opaque, Orange Opaque, Yellow Transparent, Turquoise Opaque, and Classic Black. The set also includes a booklet, and is wrapped in a Japanese-style OBI strip that features the OG album cover in all of its glory. This absolutely unique package is limited to 1500 copies on colored vinyl, and they will go fast. If you are a hip-hop fan with any cred, you likely already own Operation: Doomsday. But this amazing new edition breathes new life into a true underground classic and makes it a necessary addition to anyone’s record shelf or mantle.

Back in 2005, super-producer Danger Mouse and hip hop supervillain DOOM came together for The Mouse And The Mask, a collaborative album released under the name DANGERDOOM. Among DOOM’s most successful projects both critically and commercially, the album was inspired by Cartoon Network’s late-night Adult Swim programming slate, and includes appearances from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Harvey Birdman, and more. The Mouse And The Mask also features guest spots from Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, and Cee Lo Green.
This deluxe CD + 3xLP vinyl reissue courtesy of DOOM’s own label METALFACE Records also contains several bonus cuts not on the original album. The 7-track 2006 DANGERDOOM digital-only EP Occult Hymn is included (remastered, with high-quality audio for the first time ever), as well as two previously unreleased tracks, making this the definitive DANGERDOOM collection.

After KMD's sophomore album Black Bastards was shelved by Elektra in 1994 and Subroc (one half of the sibling rhyme duo) passed away, surviving member Zev Love X mutated into the masked rap supervillain known as MF DOOM. The Rap world is better for it. DOOM's seminal 19-cut debut album Operation Doomsday sent shockwaves through hip-hop's underground, igniting the late-90s indie hip-hop revolution in the process. The comic-book themed skits, dusty soundscapes, and clever wordplay take the listener deep into the mind of an MC who is as otherworldly as they come.
Operation Doomsday is now available on vinyl while supplies last, with an exclusive Operation Doomsday t-shirt. T-shirt also available separately.
Since debuting on the classic 3rd Bass single "The Gas Face", hip-hop folk hero MF DOOM has remained one of the most interesting figures in the rap universe. From his early days in 90s collective KMD to his reinvention as a masked supervillain leading the indie hip-hop revolution, DOOM has consistently pushed the boundaries of hip-hop in new and unexpected directions. In an era when touring is paramount and most artists are more accessible than ever, DOOM has also managed to cultivate an aura of mystery by refusing to show his face, shunning social media, rarely performing live, and occasionally sending masked imposters to perform in his place.
For these reasons, DOOM's 2005 project Live From Planet X remains a historic document. Originally released on CD only, the album is now available on vinyl for the first time ever, complete with new artwork and metallic foil print. Broadcasting from an undisclosed location, Live From Planet X offers fans a chance to experience the exceedingly rare genius of an MF DOOM performance with crisp, "straight from the soundboard" live audio recordings. Recorded before the release of the classic DOOM x Madlib collaboration Madvillainy, this collection also features DOOM performing Madvillain classics for the first time ever. Check out the historic "Accordian" performance below.
In total, Live From Planet X contains over 50 minutes of live recordings spanning classic DOOM albums like Operation Doomsday, Madvillainy, MM...FOOD?, and more. Pre-order is now available.. All orders include a download code for a digital copy of Live From Planet X.
