MF Doom Fans: TWO New Albums in June!

The first isn't a legit solo album, it's a concept album with a bunch of instrumentals and guest spots called "King Geedorah - Take Me To Your Leader." Still un-possibly dope. Check out this site for info and Real Audio of EVERY track.

Also coming in June is the legit followup to "Operation Doomsday" under the name "Viktor Vaughn" (no word on the album name, or maybe that is it) on Sound Ink Records. Check out this site for clips from two of the songs (click on the little black tab on the left of the screen).

I'm salivating over here. June can't get here soon enough.

Edit: I just listened to the Sound Ink clips and they are ridiculously short. If you look you can find the songs elsewhere - "Vaudeville Villian" and "Modern Day Mugging."

So did anyone pick up King Geedorah? It's only 42 minutes long, and he only raps on five songs, but the production is INSANE and five songs of Doom rapping is better than five songs of anyone else rapping. Favorite quotables so far:

"Since two-tone leezy's, new phonies is bony hoes lonely like cheese and baloney only."

"It's like putting fire to fake gold, it turns colors and gets duller than a bake roll with no butter."

"Getting paid like a biker with the best crank, sprayed like a high rank sniper in the West Bank."



Doom's got wordplay for days.

This should tide me over until we get the real deal when Viktor Vaughn drops on August 5. AND he has another album coming out this year. Another solo joint just as "MF Doom," entirely produced by him called Mmm...Food (Viktor Vaughn is all him rapping but is produced by others and the beats are more electronic than his usual style).

The Year of Doom.

I'll check it out, along with a few other things in your collection that look great, but you have to check out The Micranots "Obelisk Movements" if you haven't already. Straight dopeness.

So, anyone lucky enough to find Viktor Vaughn yet? I had to search a number of record stores before I got my copy at Amoeba's in Berkeley (only $12 too! Woo-hoo!). This is just insanely dope. I haven’t had it long enough to get all the subtle connections, but from what I picked up before, “Victor Vaughn” is Dr. Doom’s alter ego (letter changed for legal reasons). And Vik is one bad ass dude. It can’t replace “Operation Doomsday,” but this is the perfect follow up. Even with all the different producers this is as much of a concept album as Doomsday. It continues right where that album left off. Easily my pick for album of the year so far, and I have greatly enjoyed "Hail to the Thief," "The Thirteenth Step," and "Clear Blue Skies." I'm sure Aesop Rock's album (coming next week) will be great, but it won't match up to this. Let me just quote the opening track:

Viva la travellin Vaudeville Villian
Who don’t give a flying fcuk who ain’t not feelin him
Watch what you dealin him: Ace, King, Death Card
Strong arm the wrong man, pardon the left God
Got money and earn it, that everything you touch turns shit
Got much to learn kid, write it up, burn shit
Light it up, like the Dutch when the hash melt
Only time they see him, when they meet him, with a cash belt
Aye Carumba, now that’s my number, one dry summer, as far as I remember
Burnt out, but gave him every edgy penny
Then he hit him straight to the head like Reggie Denny
Call him back when you need some more yak
Horse yak
Doing 80 down the bandwith on horse back
Your mans sick but he wrecks tracks Puto
Get back too bro
Exactumundo
Viktor the director, flip a script like Rob Reiner
The way a lot of dudes rhyme their name should be knob shiner
For a buck they likely to dance the jiggle, do the huckle buck
To Vik it’s no big deal, they just a bunch of knuckle fcuks
You wonder how or would they hold up in a holding cell
It sorta had the strange makings of a tale told in hell
Like “Oh well”
Untold riches
If the feds is really after them, they just told all the snitches
A borrowed time rhymes, gassed by the silver screen
They act like their monkey ass would heal back like Wolverine
Mellow out, what ya’ll bellow out, ya’ll yellow mouth, what happened to to the type of spit that used to help a fellow out
No doubt, leave a rapper in a body cast
I wonder what he was doing while we was in Karate class
Snotty ass
Its really like you was a white belt
Right before he night-night ask him how the light felt
Wouldn’t take the tape if they gave it free
Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s V
Throw down the key, ya’ll know how shit be
In the naked city, rappers is so giddy
That’s no diddy, Vaughn so witty
The way he take no prisoners and show no pity
It’s how son became a big man from a black boy
To name names, a really big fan of Dan Aykroyd
He feel the need to give him his own dance
This is his only chance, to shoot the gift like a lone glance
Or like a beef scene, and leave the (?) smokin
Or between the (?) sinkin, or not (?) sweet chokin

This took a lot of work, but it was of the “male gigolo” type. I really regret not being able to nail the whole thing down, but I can claim the most accurate transcription of this song on the internet. 

And I can also claim that MF Doom is the dopest rapper on the planet.

I ordered both the King Geedorah album and the Viktor Vaughn disc a few nights ago. Hopefully I'll get them soon.

Is Operationoomsday an easy album to find? I've only recently been introduced to MF Doom, so I don't know too much other than that's said to be his best album so far.

You shouldn't have any trouble finding it. I've seen it at Best Buy.

A true classic.
