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.

At this point, pretty sure you don’t need an explanation of this album do you? If you don’t own it, buy it. Point blank. Period.

While most fans already worship classic albums like “Operation Doomsday”, “MM…FOOD”, and “Madvillainy”, DOOM’s output also includes a number of guest appearances, non-album singles, promo tracks, and other rarities that never made it onto an official release. Now, those tracks are finally available on “Unexpected Guests”, a limited-edition vinyl collection showcasing rare MF DOOM material. Included are collaborations with the likes of Talib Kweli, J Dilla, Ghostface Killah, Sean Price, Count Bass D, Vast Aire, Masta Killa, and more. Many of these tracks have never been available on vinyl before, making “Unexpected Guests” an essential addition to DOOM’s already impressive catalog.

Song produced by: M.F. DOOM

With obscure loops and dusty samples galore, Special Herbs Vol. 3 & 4 is a must-have for any DOOM fan or hip-hop head.

We are already down to our last 20 copies so if you want this, pre-order it RIGHT NOW! Deluxe edition includes custom-printed Special Blends burlap bag! Once we hit our max pre-order quantity, they will no longer be available for sale (so basically, get your pre-order in now!). The villain is putting the spotlight back on his production with the official vinyl release of Special Blends, Vol. 1 & 2. Originally self-released in extremely limited quantities back in 2004, Special Blends Vol. 1 & 2 pairs vintage DOOM-produced Special Herbs instrumentals with classic hip-hop and R&B vocals. Mixed by DOOM himself, this collection incorporates vocals from a wide range of iconic records.
Non-Deluxe Vinyl also shipping this week.

We sold out of the initial stock immediately (hey, it’s DOOM so what do you expect?), but this new release is now back in stock. “Live From Planet X” is a historic document: a fullly-realized, vibrant, engaging live stage performance from this enigmatic genius, captured in pristine audio at an important moment in his career. This is the first DOOM live record to ever be available on vinyl. “Live From Planet X” includes over 50 minutes of live recordings spanning Operation Doomsday, Madvillain, MM…Food?, and more.
CD also available.

Sold out since August! Early 90s hip hop group best known for launching the career of M.F. DOOM (known during his KMD tenure as Zev Love X). Their political outlook was similar to the group Brand Nubian, who guested on Hood; however, the style was more comical. Features the singles “Peachfuzz”, “Who Me?” and “Nitty Gritty”. This is one Rap album that is not to be missed.
CD Re-Issue also available.

We warned you (twice!) – all copies that arrived are claimed! If you didn’t pre-order it, you are S.O.O.L. Click the sold out item email on the item detail page to be notified if/when we get more in stock.
