EDITORS’ NOTES

Perennial indie-rap favorite, MF DOOM has amassed a gigantic catalog and fawning global fanbase ever since reinventing himself as the metal-faced super-villain in the late ‘90s. He's scored underground hits with quality solo albums under multiple aliases (King Geedorah, Viktor Vaughn, Metal Fingaz) and various collaborative projects (Madvillain, Dangerdoom) alike, all the while maintaining his signature style of raspy flows, complex reference-heavy lyricism, and jazz-touched sample-based production. On Unexpected Guests, he compiles 18 tracks of random guest appearances, little-heard collaborations, obscure remixes, and vinyl-only joints. The visiting talent assembled on here in impressive in itself; Dilla, Vast Aire, Talib Kweli, and Masta Killa all appear, while standout selections include "Quite Buttery" (from Count Bass D's Dwight Spitz), "Angels" with Ghostface, "Yikes" with Scienz of Life, and "?" featuring longtime homie Kurious, originally released on the classic Operation: Doomsday. A dope compilation from one of the game's most unique MCs.

Real Hip Hop

Yo. If I may interject..

Rap these days is like a pain up in the neck!
scractch Flo Bita, Black Eyed Sell Outs, Lame-minem, and especially 50bent.

DOOM rulez hip-hop with an iron mask.

A Must Cop

This is a must cop for any fan of MF DOOM who hasn't already gone out and bought these songs/albums from other artists. Daniel Dumile is one of the few artists that can still do their thing without the influences that mainstream artists must adhere to. Big Ups to the Monster Island Czar!
