This summer, everyone's favorite Metal Face-d MC has prepared for his fans a three-course gourmet meal with all the fixings. Hope you're hungry, because by the time this is over, you'll have a lot on your plate.
Up first, right after the hors d'oeuvres and wine-tasting, is a succulent reissue of the rapper's 2004 album Mm..Food?, pan-seared and served tomorrow (July 24) alongside a bonus DVD of live and behind-the-scenes footage. This course was prepared by Rhymesayers Entertainment -- after almost two years of being out of circulation -- and will also be strictly offered as a seasonal dish in a limited-edition package that includes a tour poster, sticker, and, most notably, a scratch-n-sniff wrapper with the scent of chocolate.
Without even a week to digest the first of his offerings, Doom's spicing things up on his second course with an array of tourdates for those with a trans-continental palate starting July 19. As part of the Rock the Bells tour, MF Doom will be served char-broiled with a side of Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, UGK, Mos Def, and more. Delicious!
And as if your belt won't be feeling a little tight by then, dessert is still to come. For those of you with a sweet tooth, pastry chef Nike has you covered. A new pair of skateboarding high-tops designed by MF Doom himself are now available but sure as hell don't come cheap (talking about the shoes, not the labor). Expensive taste is expensive taste.
Well, I'm already stuffed just writing this story. Time to hit that Stairmaster.
