Whether he’s telling you to ”pass the peas,” as on 1998’s Operation: Doomsday, or extolling the sweet-smelling benefits of LifeSavers (this year’s Madvillainy), underground icon MF Doom seems to have food on the brain. On MM..Food?, the self-described ”rhyming cannibal” flips countless edible metaphors over hard-hitting, jazzy beats while never devolving into pointless parody. Slicing and dicing verses like a hip-hop Iron Chef, Doom will leave you with only one question: What’s for dessert?
