Fitting that MF DOOM's re-release of his debut solo album, 1999's Operation Doomsday, comes in an old-school metal lunchbox: Fulfilling our geekiest grade school fantasies, the deluxe box set contains the original album, alternate versions, b-sides and instrumentals, PLUS lyric book, PLUS a set of 10 cards with images of the Operation Doomsday MCs (wanna trade at recess?).

The album, whose release is set for April 19, also features new artwork by Jason Jägel, who once told Stones Throw's art director, Jeff Jank, that an idea he'd had for an art show was, “One big room, 4 walls, and every lyric of Operation Doomsday, written by hand.”

If only he could go back and tell his second-grade self.
