It's the most appropriate possible tribute to a man none of us really understood. In life MF DOOM was enigmatic, ridiculous and often deeply frustrating, and Super What? allows him the same attributes in death, without overtly sentimentalising his legacy.


Super What? is hardly DOOM's definitive work, but it gives us one last snapshot of a solitary mind that spurted in wonderfully volatile ways.

The album is more or less par for the course as a Czarface release, which means that it's perfectly fun and enjoyable, especially if you geek out on comics and Saturday morning cartoons as much as they do.
Dip into ‘Super What?’ with expectations low and a good time is likely.
The Needle Drop

DOOM and Czarface's chemistry and creativity is still present on Super What, though with slightly diminishing returns.

Back with the force y'all, Bojack Horseman, all that talkin, you know that cost him"

thank you
DOOM really out here dropping fire from the grave, huh?
This slapped. There were a few things that had me worried for this record, like the fact that last time we got a CZAR + DOOM album, it wasn't that good. And the fact this was presumably made in just a few weeks, with the recording date for this being "April of 2020". But, we've gotten amazing albums that were created in that time-frame before. I can name a few, like, uh..... man, I was really worried about the quality of this ... read more
While there isn’t as much MF DOOM as I would have liked, this is still a really enjoyable project with some great production, and even if it isn’t his best, hearing new DOOM was still really special.

Before MF DOOM’s passing I had only really heard the classic Madvillainy, which I absolutely loved. But since his death, I’ve familiarized myself with more of his music. But while I have been going through his discography, this is the first of his two collaborations with ... read more
Three years after their original collab and one year after the record’s initial releases date, CZARFACE & MF DOOM are back again with a new record. While this record might not live up to MF DOOM’s classics, I can definitely say “Super Whaf?” is a step up from their last collaboration record.

Made in just a few weeks time, MF DOOM and CZARFACE deliver a short but sweet record of fantastic verses over hard hitting 90’s style boom bap beats. While I don’t ... read more
exactly 30 years after DOOM dropped his first album, Mr Hood (with KMD), Super What? has been posthumously released. and i have to admit, i’m pretty disappointed. DOOM just feels really underutilized on this. while the czarface meets METAL FACE felt like DOOM and czarface were working together, this just feels like czarface featuring DOOM. i do really like elements of this i just wish there was more DOOM.
fave: the king and eye
least fave: a name to the face
