IDK brings together MF Doom, Jay Electronica and Westside Gunn for the absolute banger “Red” off of his USEE4YOURSELF album. It’s one hell of a combination.
It still feels unreal that MF DOOM is gone. But the fact remains that the metal-faced villain has left behind a remarkable legacy and he will forever be missed. He also left behind songs that we have yet to hear. Among them is his collaboration with Your Old Droog titled “Dropout Boogie” which is produced by Edan. And, of course, it’s dope.
Prior to MF DOOM’s passing, the enigmatic emcee teamed up with the trio of Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric for the CZARFACE Meets Metal Face album. Although the metal-faced emcee is no longer with us, he’s left behind a follow-up project with CZARFACE titled Super What?
If, for some reason, you’re unsure of the album’s dopeness, check out the track “DOOM Unto Others” and then dive until the entire project.
The rapping enigma known as MF DOOM has died at the age of 49.
News of his passing shocked the world when his wife, Jasmine, made the announcement on his Instagram page. The cause of his death has yet to be said.
Known for his complex rhyme schemes and trademark metal mask, MF DOOM’s career began as Zev Love X as part of the rap group KMD. He disappeared from the public eye after his younger brother DJ Subroc passed away in 1993. When he re-emerged in the late 1990s, he took on a whole new persona that cultivated a rabid fan base.
Donning a metal mask and taking on the new name MF DOOM — a nod to Marvel’s Doctor Doom — he recorded various albums while being relatively untouchable. From his classic Madvillainy with Madlib to solo ventures including MM…Food and Operation Doomsday, DOOM became your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.
It is with great sadness that we have to make this announcement, but let’s remember DOOM for all he gave to us in the wonderful world of Hip Hop.

Kanye West is the target for assassination in the video for MF Doom and DJ Muggs “Assassination Day (Trust No One).” The animated video finds a shadowy figure — a “Soul Assassin,” if you will — making his way to a building amidst a sea of people with “Slavery was a choice” and “Keep America great 2020” signs. The target for the assassination attempt is none other than staunch Trump supporter, Kanye West. After the attempt proves to be successful, both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin are seen laughing at the fallen West.
The video for Youth of Apocalypse’s “Drop the Bomb” feat. MF Doom has arrived with powerful archived footage that displays just what war does to country. Here’s a statement from the video’s director.
“The shocking imagery in this video acts as a reflection of the past, to show us a mirror image of our present day, to highlight mankind’s long, harrowing history of odious violence and senseless destruction and how we clearly haven’t learned anything from all the pointless and atrocious acts of warfare, invasion and genocide that have been committed and experienced over the years. It feels like we are currently living in a new era of nuclear uncertainty, a modern day cold war, the anxiety and tensions surrounding global superpowers and their destructive capabilities is on the edge of everyone’s minds. This video is an anti-war and anti-bomb statement that asks the question – How much death, grief, fear and chaos will it take for us to finally wake up and start focusing on the bigger picture, when will the governments of the world give up their precious nuclear weapons and their tedious war games and actually attempt to repair the catastrophic damage that’s been inflicted on us and the planet? We need real love, support and understanding for one another now more than ever before. Time is running out for the human race and maybe we’re already past the point of no return, but we must keep on relentlessly fighting for a positive change and a brighter future as a species until the day that they finally decide to Drop The Bomb….”
