Noughties #88: MF Doom "MM..Food?" (Rhymesayers, 2004)

Danile Dumile, aka Zevlove X, aka Viktor Vaughn, aka MF Doom, must be one of the most critically acclaimed hip hop emcees and producers of the noughties. His Madvillainy project with producer Madlib appears on most end of decade lists, though it just misses the cut here in favour of this singular effort. MM..Food? is a playful food themed extravaganza. There is less violence and more sugar, and the extra dose of fun comes across well in the innovative choice of samples and beats.

Highlights: doom - deep fried frenz doom - kon queso doom - rapp snitch knishes
