Special collectors edition of an all-time classic -

As you know, we're very keen supporters of the cassette format, with that in mind it was obvious that we had to get some of these in to our hands, and let's face it, what better type of music to be manifested on tape than the music of MF Doom?!
This highly limited version features some of his very best, with added instrumental's and B-Sides to complete the - very finely packed-up - package.

"Though currently considered one of the most legendary releases in hip hop’s storied history the project was independently produced and released in 1999 and issued on Bobbito’s Fondle ‘Em imprint. Stripped down hip-hop in all it’s glory, the release cemented the MC’s return to the scene after his early years in the group KMD. As the story goes, DOOM had been chewed up and spit out of the major label system, lost his brother and musical partner Subroc, and then disappeared only to return to the stage rocking a mask and an obscured identity. In under two years, OPERATION DOOMSDAY was already reissued on another label with an altered track list. During the time DOOM started working with Madlib on the Madvillain record, DOOMSDAY went out of print, got bootlegged, and somewhere along the way emerged as a hip-hop classic. DOOM’s own imprint Metalface Records ­nally re-issued the de­finitive version of the remastered album in 2011 – a CD (in a lunch box) and metal-covered 4LP set was released. "
