MF DooM

"What I find truly fascinating about DOOM, is that most rappers ride behind the beat, or rather take their cue from the beat. Whereas DOOM seems to dictate the beat- not vice versa. If it were a dance, others let the beat lead, where with DOOM he is right there with the beat if not anticipating it. For example the beat starts on his first consonant. Rapping in DOOM's style is very hard. I, atleast find myself sounding like I'm behind the beat, because DOOM rides infront of the beat."

Known for his ability to wrap himself around the beat, MF DooM not only raps but produces beats (all of his own as well as many for mainstream rappers). He's had an identity crisis, holding all of the names: MF DooM, King Geedorah, Viktor Vaughn, The SuperVillain, and Metalfingers. It has seemed that he has worn a mask ever since the death of his brother, who rapped with him in the group KMD (Kausing Much Damage) back when he was a youngster. Due to his ability to stay under the media, his location has changed from New York to the Mid West to Atlanta. He recently got caught sending other people to perform for him (lol). Check it this track, its really smooth, he produced the beat himself.

    I first heard of MF DOOM on the Gorillaz album Demon Days, though I must admit I haven't really pursued him that much.

    This vid was pretty dope though, I especially like the casual swagger he flows with. Think I have something new to explore...

    great article although i didn't know him. but you're right with your statement!

    I'm not a really big fan of hip hop myself, but I must say that I've stumbled upon his music recently and it was one of the few that grew on me, he is definitely skilled!
