Operation: Doomsday is the debut solo album by British-American emcee/producer MF DOOM, marking his return to the hip hop scene after KMD’s demise.
The album was financed by MF Grimm who also supplied many of the samples in his capacity as executive producer. The album was also recorded in his basement. Despite this, he has never been paid any of the royalties he was entitled to, leading to a beef between the two artists for a period of time in the mid-2000s. Despite being reissued, the CD went out of print sometime between 2003 and 2004, quickly becoming an expensive collector’s item, while the LP stayed in print for much longer. The original cover was designed by LORD SCOTCH 79th.
