MF DOOM’s debut studio LP ‘Operation: Doomsday’ is one of those records that often appears on ‘best of the 90s’ lists. Released in 1999, this album established DOOM as one of the most original and vibrant voices in hip-hop’s underground. DOOM proves himself both an unparalleled wordsmith and highly dexterous producer here (the record is almost exclusively produced by Metal Fingers, DOOM’s beat-maker moniker). Gritting up A Tribe Called Quest’s jazz-rap style with shades of the RZA’s classic output, ‘Operation: Doomsday’ is an album for the ages.
