Rapper MF Doom dead at age 49

While he never attained much in the way of commercial success, MF DOOM was universally admired among hip-hop fans and artists alike. A cause of death was not revealed.

Jasmine Dumile posted a photo of the rapper and a heartfelt message on his Instagram pag e.

'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'. Pitchfork said the latter was "often hailed as the best rap album that you've never heard". "May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet", the rapper's wife Jasmine said in his Instagram account, announcing on 31 December, 2020, that he had died two months earlier, on 31 October.

His representatives confirmed his death to Rolling Stone magazine.

The London-born musician, real name Daniel Dumile, was known for his sharp, intricate rhymes and his signature mask, which he never removed in public.

His debut as MF Doom, Operation: Doomsday, was released in 1999, and he followed it up with an nearly non-stop outpouring of music. In 2014, he would release NehruvianDoom with young mentee Bishop Nehru, and would join forces with Czarface for Czarface Meets Metal Face in 2018. Rapper QTIP tweeted Thursday, "RIP to another Giant your favorite MC's MC".
