Here’s MF Doom

Daniel Dumile(/ˈduːmiːleΙͺ/Β DOOM-ee-lay;Β January 9, 1971 – October 31, 2020), best known by his stage nameΒ MF DoomΒ or simplyΒ DoomΒ (both stylized inΒ all caps), was a British-American rapper and record producer. Famed for his intricate wordplay, signature metal mask, and “supervillain” stage persona, Dumile became a major figure ofΒ underground hip hopΒ in the mid-2000s.

Born in London, Dumile moved toΒ Long Island, New York, at a young age. He began his musical career in 1988 as a member ofΒ KMD, performing under the nameΒ Zev Love X; the group disbanded in 1993 upon the death of member DJ Subroc (Dumile’s brother). After a hiatus from music, Dumile reemerged in the late 1990s when he began performing atΒ open micΒ events while wearing a metal mask resembling that ofΒ Marvel ComicsΒ supervillainΒ Doctor Doom, who is depicted on the cover of his 1999 debut solo albumΒ Operation: Doomsday. He adopted the MF Doom persona and rarely made unmasked public appearances thereafter.

Dumile’s most prolific period was in the early-mid 2000s, when between 2003 and 2005 he released four studio albums (including 2004’sΒ Mm..Food) and two collaborative albums, using the MF Doom moniker as well as the pseudonymsΒ King GeedorahΒ andΒ Viktor Vaughn. His sixth and final solo studio album,Β Born Like This, was released in 2009. Dumile relocated to London in the 2010s, where he mostly worked in collaboration with other rappers.

Dumile frequently worked with other producers and rappers, most notablyΒ Madlib, under the monikerΒ Madvillain. The duo’s 2004 albumΒ MadvillainyΒ received acclaim and has been cited as Dumile’sΒ magnum opus and a landmark album in hip hop.Β Dumile’s other notable collaborations includeΒ Danger DoomΒ (withΒ Danger Mouse), Doomstarks (withΒ Ghostface Killah),Β JJ DoomΒ (withΒ Jneiro Jarel),Β NehruvianDoomΒ (withΒ Bishop Nehru), andΒ Czarface Meets Metal FaceΒ (withΒ Czarface).
