KMD - Mr. Hood (1991). While Mr. Hood isn’t technically a DOOM album, there is no MF DOOM without KMD. Before the mask and the mystery, there was Zev Love X, a Five-Percenter with a high-pitched voice and bars ready to unspool.

What is going on at discogs? This is not an unofficial release. This is an independent reissue released by doom around the early 2000’s and should be made available for purchase.
Take it up in the forum if you believe this isn’t unofficial..
It’s not a bootleg if your the rights owner. In this case the artist owns the masters and presses them up. A bootleg is an unauthorized reproduction. How can anyone truly know unless you have spoken with the artist or label to know if something is a bootleg. Quite sure you haven’t had a convo with doom about this. I picked this up at a show of his around 2000, That’s why I say it’s not. In the mid 90’s around the time kind got dropped, it’s documented that Elektra gave him back the masters to their music.
It's a bootleg version of the actual Elektra release. that's why it's unofficial.
Hi. I have the TEG CD of this album but if this CDs "unofficial" tag is incorrect it can be removed by just clicking on the 'Edit Release" link in the top right corner then it will be for available for sale. Thanks!
Anyone else getting loads of sibilance on their copy?
Yes...only on certain tracks though and I have a perfectly aligned setup using an Ortofon 2M Red with only 50 hours on it
PERFECT DOUBLE VINYL REISSUE OF "MR. HOOD"...EXCEPT FOR ONE TINY DETAILThis double vinyl pressing was much-needed; the vastness of "Mr. Hood" needed room to breathe in a huge way. Artists like K.M.D. who put out long albums shouldn't be punished by having those albums edited or crammed onto single LPs, which only results in crappy sound and quiet grooves. (Similar examples: De La Soul's "De La Soul Is Dead", which sounds horrifyingly quiet and bassless on LP, and the nearly-inaudible Digital Underground LP of "Sons Of The P", which begs for huge rolling bass and utterly fails to deliver on the original vinyl pressing.) My only beef with this reissue is that this double vinyl version thoughtlessly splits the songs "Nitty Gritty" and "Trial 'N Error" over sides B and C and ruins the brilliant transition where they flip a cut-up Q-Tip vocal sample. On this reissue, "Nitty Gritty" is last track on record 1, side B, and "Trial 'N' Error" is first track on record 1, side C — but they were originally back to back as the first two tracks on side B of the original 1991 vinyl LP and the original cassette. Splitting these two songs up really ruins the subtle, slick transition at the end of NG wherein there's a sped-up and chopped-up Q-Tip vocal sample from the A Tribe Called Quest track "Push it Along" — Q changes from saying "it's the nitty gritty, it's the nitty gritty", which is heard throughout the "Nitty Gritty" to: "it's the trial 'n error, more like trial 'n error" at the very end. The effect of KMD's frankly brilliant and subtle flip from one track into another is really lost when you have to stop and put on the second record. Admittedly, this is a small thing. But on an album that succeeds 100% on every conceivable level, all those tiny details matter, you know? When you mess with the carefully thought-out track order and flow, you're changing the experience of a masterpiece. But...like I said, the sound quality is great. For seamless segues and transitions I guess I'll just go with the lossless digital version of the album, the vinyl's mostly for playing out anyway. ;)
In my top ten hip hop albums I've ever heard. Every facet of this album is fantastic, from the production and beats to the sound of Zevlove X and Onyx's voices, their lyrics, the rhymes. No two songs sound the same on this, and the sample sources used in building up the tracks are bonkers. Language translation LPs, Sesame Street records? (SD50s and Prince Paul were kind of on a similar trip back then with the wacky-but-funky sonics.) Some tracks are more topical, some tell stories...the in-between skits are hilarious and thought-provoking at the same time. The Brand Nubian guest appearance on "Nitty Gritty" is unreal it's so good. And the CD bonus track "Gasface Refill" is a dope sequel to KMD's debut on wax, on 3rd Bass's single "The Gas Face". (It wasn't originally on cassette or vinyl versions, but later appeared on the vinyl reissue.) Pound for pound, this thing was almost better than "De La Soul Is Dead" or "The Low End Theory", which dropped the same year (that amazing run of unstoppably creative 1991 hip hop albums). ...Almost.
Note: I did say *almost*. De La Is Dead is probably my favorite. It spins me out twenty years later!
Nicely put, this is a record that I came to way, way too late and it's every bit as engaging and textured as you put forth. It's true that this early 90s era did indeed showcase some radically creative, outside-the-typical-parameters albums. Major labels were more likely to sign far left of center acts like Divine Styler once the Native Tongues acts started selling records in the late 80s. It was not to last, as things went "back to the streets" with albums like Nas' debut, the Wu-Tang debut, and perhaps the biggest of them all, 1994's "Doggystyle" by Snoop Dog. One wonders what would have happened if the music business didn't insist on "ghetto" and hypermasculine being the primary marketing style of rap at the time. Many of the most imaginative rappers and producers of the early 90s came from more middle-class homes, with more progressive and cutting-edge tastes and opinions--- and they raided their parents' record collections to find a whole new generation of material. See as examples just in the NY area Pete Rock & CL Smooth, A.D.O.R., and Heavy D in Mount Vernon, Brand Nubian in New Rochelle, and Public Enemy, EPMD, De La Soul, Prince Paul, KMD, and others in Long Island. Now, about "Mr. Hood" being better than "De La Soul Is Dead", wellll........ I'll just say that each of these two albums has remarkably deep layers of meaning and intent that could easily take years to fully absorb. The way that KMD balances youthful, goofball enthusiasm with racial criticism and conceptual influence from original Last Poet Gylan Kain, and even namedropping Dr. York (ok, well, THAT was a mistake in hindsight; look him up on Wikipedia if you don't know) is seriously inspiring. But now about that second De La record....
