MF Doom

MF Doom / King Gedorah
Doom?s career in hip hop goes right back to the early 90s when, known as Zev Love X, he was a central member of nu skool phenomenons KMD. Dropped by Elektra for refusing to change ?controversial? cover artwork, tragedy was heaped o­n top of disappointment when Zev Love?s brother and fellow band member, Subroc, was killed in a car accident. The young MC and producer vanished from the hip hop scene and was, to some extent, forgotten. In 1998, though, he re-emerged o­n Bobbito Garcia?s classic label Fondle ?Em as MF Doom and over the next few years cemented his place as o­ne of the most important names o­n the underground scene, “Operation: Doomsday” was hailed as a classic and KMD?s ?lost? album, “Black Bastards” finally saw the light of day. A generation of musicians have grown up in awe of him and he has since worked with everyone from Prefuse 73 to Madlib.
