A Short Biography of MF Doom: Zev Lov X

MF Doom whose real name was Daniel Dumile, a rapper, songwriter, and record producer was born 9 January 1971 in London, the son of a Trinidadian mother and a Zimbabwean father.

After a while he moved with his family to Long Island, New York at a young age.

The late rapper started his music career under the name Zev Lov X as part of the trio K.M.D which later disbanded in 1993 due to the death of Dumile’s brother, DJ Subroc. Also, Subroc was killed in a car accident in 1993, so Dumile retreated from public view.

The group released two albums: “Mr. Hood” in 1991 and “Black Bastards” two years later. Subroc died shortly before the release of the second album.

He re-emerged in the late 1990s at the Nuyorican Poets’ Cafe in Manhattan where he performed, unannounced, wearing a stocking over his face. The concern with anonymity would become a calling card, as Doom adopted various means of subterfuge.

MF’s last solo studio album, Born Like This, was published in 2009. His most recent album was a 2018 collaboration with the group Czarface: Czarface Meets Metal Face.

On 18 December 2017, he announced on Instagram that his son, born on 22 February 2003, had died.

    I am starting to think that Landon Lenkov through use of the Spot Them Got Them program or Stoic Voices Program or Stolen Voices Program targeted M F Doom what some morbid curiosity until M F Doom got tired of what he was being put through.

    I am starting to think that Landon Lenkov through use of the Spot Them Got Them program or Stoic Voices Program or Stolen Voices Program targeted M F Doom with some morbid curiosity until M F Doom got tired of what he was being put through. It is the last chant of MF Doom that got played that got me thinking this way and the fact I myself have been a target since December of 2019 possibly because who I resemble. Landon Lenkov may be a advance form of artificial intelligence, robot, android or automaton with computer programmers and integrated technologis connected to a wanna be clandestine group playing puppet master.
