THE OFFICIAL RE-ISSUE IS FINALLY HERE!!! Bl_ck B_st_rds was voted in Ego Trip’s Book of Rap Lists as the most notable rap album of all time that was never released commercially, and with good reason. The fact that this excellent album, slated for a 1994 release, did not seen the light of day until 2001 (its first issue – now out of print) testifies to a time when shortsighted industry backlashes against records that inflamed Middle America were in vogue. Elektra Records higher-ups canned the project due to its controversial cover art, which shows a Sambo figure being lynched. This must-purchase concept album is worth the wait.

M.F. DOOM’s first group and their controversial sophmore release Bl_ck B_st_ards is now available in a deluxe double vinyl pressing. One of the LPs is a red vinyl pressing with the second LP being a picture disc featuring the group’s longstanding mascot. The jacket includes a pop-up of the KMD mascot inside the gatefold and the set is rounded out with the inclusion of full liner notes by Brian Coleman.
CD (Deluxe Edition) also available.
