Hip Hop World Remembers MF DOOM

American rapper Daniel Dumile, best known by his stage name MF DOOM, died on October 31 at the age of 49. His death was announced on Instagram by his wife and label on December 31 of 2020.

Dumile was born in the British capital London and moved to the United States as a child. He started his career in the 1980s, making music under different stage names. Together with his brother Dingilizwe (Subroc), he formed the group KMD. After the death of his brother in 1993, Dumile stayed out of the spotlight for some time. In 1997 he took the stage name MF DOOM (Metal Face DOOM). Since then he refused to be photographed without a mask.

With albums like Operation: Doomsday (1999) and Madvillainy (2004) – HHGA’s #1 album of the 2000s – he achieved great success, especially in the underground Hip Hop scene. In December of 2020, his last collaboration – with BADBADNOTGOOD – appeared.

Although DOOM died on October 31, his death was not announced until Thursday evening. Jasmine Dumile, the wife of the iconic rapper revealed the shocking news that her husband had died on MF DOOM’s Instagram account. The cause of death was not stated.

The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for. Thank you for all the things you have shown, taught and given to me, our children and our family. Thank you for teaching me how to forgive beings and give another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write off. Thank you for showing how not to be afraid to love and be the best person I could ever be. My world will never be the same without you. Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always. May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet.

Soon after the news, the Hip Hop world took to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to remember ad honor MF DOOM. Here’s a selection of what was posted on Twitter:
