Have You Heard of MF Doom?
The death of a legend
By Johnny Barraza
Underground rapper MF DOOM’s death caught all of his fans by surprise. His family announced his death at the beginning of this year, but what really shocked everyone is that he’s been dead since October 31. He was only 49. The cause of his death has not been disclosed, so it remains a mystery to his fans.
Metal Face Doom was known by many for two things: the first being the secrecy of his personal life and the other being his love for music. He was able to rap and make it seem effortless.
Doom was famous for his lyricism and ability to use the beats he produced to his advantage. It was as if he manipulated the music to fit his desires.
Doom’s two most loved projects are Madvilliany and Mm.. Food. They each portrayed a story filled with great detail and featuring double-meaning wordplay.
This guy was truly a talented artist who didn’t get the recognition he deserved, and he left this world far too soon.
