Discover the incredible life of MF Doom and hear an exclusive conversation between Parrish Smith and Prime Minister Pete Nice.
On November 17, 2021, the Universal Hip Hop Museum and AllHipHop.com will celebrate Hip Hop History Month by highlighting the late greats MF DOOM, EPMD and Boogie Down Production.
The late great MF DOOM was one of the most creative hip-hops in the world. He was a gifted lyricist, a huge fan of graffiti, and as a producer he was a portal for all the creative energies who always wanted to push the boundaries of Hip Hop.
An original member of the rap group KMD, performing under the name Zev Love X, he constantly evolved from the late 80s until his death in 2020.
One way he got around the rules was to release albums under the pseudonyms King Geedorah and Viktor Vaughn. Even the general public has recognized this âundergroundâ icon. Variety described him as one of the âmost famous, unpredictable and enigmatic figures on the sceneâ.
Fun fact: Although it was staged during the heyday of hip-hop in New York City, it wasn’t from the Big Apple. Like Slick Rick, Monie Love and 21 Savage, he was born in Britain.
On Friday November 17, 1989, hip-hop legends EPMD and Boogie Down Productions with KRS-One performed a double-ended show at New York’s famed Apollo Theater.
The Blast Master had recently formed the âStop the Violence Movementâ in the hope of encouraging the community to end the senseless violence being committed.
He gathered some of the biggest names on the East Coast to come together on the song “Self Destruction” which debuted at No. 1 on the very first Billboard “Hot Rap Songs” and held the spot for ten weeks.
