The Life And Times Of MF DOOM

By | 54 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/mf-doom-operation-doomsday-reissue-releases-with-a-lunch-box"> Flash back to 2004. Young(er) David D. was a freshman in college and became one of those people that goes off, gets educated and feels too smart for what everyone else is in to. That meant strapping on a backpack and listening to everything underground. My iPod was full of albums like Wordsworth's Mirror Music and Masta Ace's Long Hot Summer. But above all, I was an MF DOOM stan. I listened to every DOOM album and had them on full rotation for a year straight. DOOM ruled the underground during a time when Hip-Hop was in a weird transition from being dominated by message boards and actual physical interaction to the blog world we live in now. If DOOM had the whole Internet behind him in its current incarnation, he'd be an unstoppable force beyond his current cult status. But in the last couple of years, something strange has happened; DOOM's disappeared. After having impostors show up at live performances and not really creating any music, MF DOOM has become even more of a mysterious relic from the last days of the Hip-Hop underground. For those of you that missed the craze, here's a rundown of his projects so you can get familiar. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=165136"> MF DOOM - Operation Doomsday (1999) -- Though OD was released in 1999, it didn't come into fashion until after DOOM was an underground sensation. People flooded the net looking for the album, but it was <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/si-out-of-print-hip-hop-albums-that-we-needed-yesterday#page/1">out of print</a>.
