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.
All my Love
MF Doom first came to fame in the early 90’s, then going by Zev Love X, as part of rap group KMD (see: their 1993 debut Mr. Hood is a gem), which also featured his late brother Subroc, who passed away in 1993.
At this time there is no information regarding his cause of death. Rest in power MF DOOM, spell his name with all caps.
As word of his transition spreads, the tributes to the Hip-Hop legend are beginning to pour in

WOW Rest Easy MF Doom …
those who know — know…
one of the most influential, unique, and brilliant MCs of all time. there is no way to squeeze into one tweet how important and special this man was. just go dig into his catalogue (start with KMD's first album) and zone out
