The Death Of A Hip-Hop Legend

It’s been over a year since the death of MF DOOM was announced on New Year’s Eve in 2020. The news came weeks after he initially passed away, but out of respect, his family delayed sharing the information. He’s influenced many artists in his lifetime, including Lupe Fiasco, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Trippie Redd & many more. His style was one of the most unique to ever exist in Rap & not always easily accessible. It’s hard to deny his lyrical genius & endless amount of creativity when hearing his songwriting. Despite not being a common mainstream name, his legacy will always carry on & propel him into the memories of everyone his music touched globally.
