MM..Food? (2004)

Details Release Date: Nov 16, 2004; Lead Performance: MF Doom; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

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?
