Special Herbs, Vols. 9 & 0 is an instrumental album released by MF Doom under the moniker Metal Fingers. As with all volumes of Special Herbs released by Metal Fingers, each track is named after a herb or similar flora (with the exception of "Untitled (Meditation)").

Although an instrumental album, some tracks contain sampled speech, such as "Food... we need food!" in "Vervain" and "Peach fuzz!" in "Peach Extract". The track "Coca Leaf" is made up of vocal samples of singing women.
