So, you've just heard some sick rhymes from MF DOOM at a party; your friends house; online, whatever. Well, if you haven't already seen, Doom has a huge amount of releases. If you've taken a fancy to this genius with a mic, this guide can get you on your way to experiencing all his best work.

Happy listening!

1. Madvillain, Madvillainy

Possibly one of the greatest Hip-Hop album's of all time, Madvillainy is sure to get you started on the right foot. The name Madvillainy is derived from the combo between instrumentalist hip-hop artist Madlib and of course, MF DOOM. It's best to listen to this album all the way through, as it does have a nice flow to it. However, some of the top songs are:

Money Folder
Operation Lifesaver aka Mint Test
All Caps
Rhinestone Cowboy

2. MF DOOM Operation: Doomsday

Now that you've heard Madvillain, it's time to take a look at MF's solo album: Doomsday. The rap is just as cleaver as ever; and this is the album that really got him recognized as a successful rapper. Top songs include but not limited to:

Rhymes Like Dimes
Red And Gold
Who do you think I am?
Operation: Greenbacks
Dead Bent
Cas Drawls

3. King Geedorah Take Me to Your Leader

Just another side project and alter ego of DOOM. This album is excellent tho. It could arguably be better than most of his others (besides Madvillainy of course). A few suggestions:

Every single song. I started listing songs but realized I was putting all of them down!

OK. Those are the three I'd start with. If you want to look further, try his newest album; Born Like This. MM..Food is also a release that definitely won't let you down. This is just a start though. There's tons of work that I've left out, and if people actually read this it's likely that I'll make this bigger.

Just this year (2009) a compilation came out entitled Doom!. I haven't listened to it personally, but there are a few songs from the albums listed above as well as a decent chunk from other ones.

"When he have the mic it's like the place get like: 'Ah yeah!'
It's like they know what's 'bout to happen
Just keep ya eye out, like aye, aye captain"
Envios aceitos
Fans of real Hip-Hop, MF Doom

    i agree mm...food should be included, and apart from to much ATHF DangerDoom's album the mask and the mouse is dope as hell.

    How can you not recommend Vaudeville Villain? Most fans agree that it's one of his best albums. And yeah I agree with the above statements that MM.. FOOD should be listed too.
