As if 2020 hadn’t reaped enough destruction, in its last hours it was revealed that we’d lost one of hip-hop’s most respected players. News of MF DOOM's passing landed when the late rapper’s wife posted through his Instagram page on December 31st 2020, though it has since been confirmed that Daniel Dumile, AKA MF DOOM, had passed away months before, on October 31st.

Known for his lyrical content, complex rhyming, production, and, most of all, unmistakable metal mask, MF DOOM leaves an indelible mark on the world of music and culture as a whole. And, while many took to social media to mourn the loss and remember him with visuals, we think there’s only one real way to honor the man behind the mask, and that’s on wax.

In homage to the all caps man, we took to the net to bag some of the supervillain’s greatest tracks on record. These MF DOOM records stretch from 1999 through to 2018 and contain some of the artist’s most memorable moments, from the iconic Operation: Doomsday through to lauded collaborative releases like Madvillainy.

Released in 2018 but characterized by the punchy sounds of Wu-Tang's peak courtesy of the Clan's very own Inspectah Deck on the buttons, Czarface Meets Metal Face is yet more proof of the wide-reaching talents of Doom whose abstract rhymes oppose the pace and aggression of Czarface in spectacular style.
