Lupe Fiasco has paid tribute to MF DOOM with a new freestyle. He said, “Thanx DOOM…I learned so much from you about the art of rapping”.
The legendary producer and rapper Daniel Dumile died on October 31. But his wife Jasmine confirmed the sad news on December 31. She shared the news on his Instagram account. She revealed that DOOM passed away on October 31, 2020. His cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
Jasmine wrote, “To Dumile. 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.”
She also added, “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.”
Then Lupe Fiasco shared a pair of tweets. Lupe’s messages stated, “To whom it may concern: I ask and propose that from this point forward all rappers from everywhere and from every style and every level in the craft refer to ‘Similes’ as ‘Dumiles’. He also added, “A small gesture for a fallen master…MF DOOM. Can I get a 2nd?”
Lupe quoted one of the lines from DOOM’s ‘Kon Queso’ in his second tweet. It is taken from the late musician’s 2004 album ‘MM…FOOD’. He wrote, “When they get to know us people dig us, leaders in the fights for equal rights for n****s…’ -MF DOOM. One of my favorite lines of all time.”
He added, “Wanted to be like him. ‘Sit back and watch the world through the eyeholes in my oil paintings’ – LF Trying His Best To Be Like MF.” Then he continued, “Thanx DOOM…I learned so much from you about the art of rapping,” he tweeted. “Studied and analyzed you for years as recently as a few days ago. I wish I could’ve met you to tell you that…here’s some raps…rest easy…Amin…”
Lupe also shared a new freestyle in honor of DOOM. He raps: “Crying like a grown man… we’ll take it from here, look how far you brought us.”
