Lupe Fiasco + Royce 5’9 Remember MF Doom
Following MF’s announced death, rap veterans Lupe Fiasco and Royce Da 5’9 went to their Instagram pages to acknowledge Doom’s impact on their lives. 5’9 took things a step further and cited the death as a reason musicians should unite more than ever.

Lupe even made a plea for all hip-hop artists to reconsider terminology in honor of Doom.
“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” Pronounced ‘Doom-ah-lays’ A small gesture for a fallen master. MF DOOM. Can I get a 2nd?”
MF Doom’s Death At 49
Initially, Doom’s longtime wife went to his Instagram page to issue a statement on his passing. More shocking, Jasmine revealed in the open message he actually died in late October.
“Begin all things by giving thanks to THE ALL! 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. 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. All my Love Jasmine”
In the past, Doom talked about getting a chance to meet late rap icon Tupac Shakur in-person.
“I’d have to say back when we went on tour with Kane and Third Bass, playing huge arenas, and of course my brother was alive then so we were causing trouble, just going crazy having fun. And when we’d come out to do our part on “Gas Face-it’s a small verse, but when I come out on stage it was a famous song so people would be hyped. I’d be nervous until that one point To this day I get nervous until the point I have to walk out on stage. I’d walk out, do the verse and kill it! It was only like 30 seconds if that Then I’d bounce. That time was fun. Talk to Kane, see how his show was, get advice from those types of dudes. All those people were good back then. Tupac was on the road with Digital Underground at the time so I got to kick it with Pac, and he was a cool dude. This was before he came out with his first album or anything. Even when I’d see him after that after he got large, he always kept a thoroughly cool dude. It was a peaceful experience learning and everything.” (Stones Throw)
In the same interview, Doom acknowledged how much the music biz – notably hip-hop – had altered since the early 90’s.
“Nowadays hip-hop has changed. It needs to get back to that on the main level. Too much f*cking drama, it’s a musical art we’re dealing with for one. It’s art; it’s a loving thing, a good vibe sh*t. How you gonna bring that sh*t killing people, it’s absurd. Look at other genres-country, jazz-nobody is blasting each other in that sh*t That needs to stay out of the music. If you a gangsta, be a gangsta. If you’re an entertainer, be an entertainer. If you’re a gangsta kid that wants to rock, keep the gangsta sh*t out of the rhyme. It don’t belong there. It’s corny.
