“To all rappers: shut up with your shutting up
And keep your shirt on, at least a button-up
Yuck, is they rhymers or strippin' males?
Out of work jerks since they shut down Chippendales”
MF DOOM - MM...FOOD (2004)
• @vinylmeplease exclusive pressing
• Double LP pressed on green and white vinyl
• Housed in a heavyweight ‘tip on’ style gatefold jacket
The 2nd album under the alias of MF DOOM; MM...FOOD, is Daniel Dumile’s most creative and thematic album to date, whilst also in my opinion his most accessible. On this album DOOM serves up the majority of the production. He cooks up eccentric beats and incredibly colourful samples which make the album experience as a whole very refreshing, fun and bubbly, allowing DOOM to eat up each beat with his conventional flows, humorous bars, slick wordplay and zesty punchlines. DOOM does a great job of sticking to the theme of food throughout this project, however, this doesn’t hold him back as his sharp and ingenious double entendres allow him to delve into other ventures and subject matters. This album came at the end of a 2 year period of time where DOOM released some his best material such as Take Me To Your Leader, Vaudeville Villain and Madvillainy. A quite extraordinary feet to release some of my favourite hip hop albums ever, all in a 2 year period
Like any @vinylmeplease pressing they done a fantastic job. Just how it feels and looks alone is worth it, the heavyweight tip on style jacket looks and feels great and really makes the eccentric artwork pop. Not to mention the colour of the vinyl matches perfectly with the cover art. The vinyl itself also sounds incredible on the turntable and makes every sample pop even more and every punchline hit even harder, a must have for any fan of the metal fingered villain
Fave tracks: Beef Rap, Potholderz, Rapp Snitch Knishes
Music rating: Strong 9
Quality of pressing:😀

On this day in 1999, Handsome Boy Modeling School released “So...How’s Your Girl?”🔥🔥
A collaborative project by the two extremely talented producers: Dan the Automator & Prince Paul. And as one would expect from this unique collab, the production is nothing short of incredible. It’s a truly one-of-a-kind, eccentric, experimental work of art.
Also, there are so many dope features on this album, including: Del The Funky Homosapien, El-P, DJ Shadow, Grand Puba, Sadat X, J-Live, Kid Koala and more. I don’t hear this album talked about very often, so if you haven’t heard it, please do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
My favorite tracks are: Once Again (Here To Kick One For You) (ft. Grand Puba & Sadat X), Torch Song Trilogy (ft. Sensational), the PJays (ft. Dave of De La Soul & Del The Funkee Homosapien), Waterworld (ft. Encore), & The Truth (ft. Roisin of Moloko & J-Live), what are yours? 👇🏼The entire album is dope. #HandsomeBoyModelingSchool#SoHowsYourGirl
