King Geedorah aka MF DOOM is perhaps the most legendary and revered living figure in underground hip hop today. On the conceptual classic: Take Me To Your Leader he takes the form of a giant three-headed lizard from outer space to give you “Geedorah’s alien perspective on humans”.
This re-issue includes Take Me To Your Leader on 2LP Black Vinyl + Anti-Matter on 7” Black Vinyl as a bundle package. For for the 20th anniversary edition, we’ve gone for the original red and white artwork, gatefold sleeve. The 7″ is also in original 7″ artwork.
13 tracks all produced, written, recorded, arranged, mixed and mastered by the Metal Fingered Villain himself, MF DOOM.
A generation of musicians have grown up in awe of DOOM – he’s influenced and worked with Flying Lotus, Earl Sweatshirt, Madlib, Clams Casino, Danger Mouse, RZA, Ghostface Killah, De La Soul and more.
Originally released in 2003 – a year before Madvillain – Madvillainy, the collaborative opus with Madlib (Stones Throw / Jaylib / Quasimoto) – TMTYL was a critical success. “You don’t know it yet, but this is your favorite album of the summer. Sh*t, of this whole foul, corporate-owned, Republican-approved year of our lord, two thousand and three.” Pitchfork (9.0).
Alongside the classic Operation: Doomsday (Fondle ‘Em), Take Me To Your Leader is a criminally rare full-length studio production project from MF DOOM – off-centre beats that owe much to his love of jazz, fantastically skilled, charismatic MCing and ideas galore.
Features a variety of vocal guests (some under alias) including MF DOOM, Kurious, MF GRIMM (as Jet Jaguar) and other members of NYC’s Monsta Island Czars and more.
