5 January 2021

Influential rap artist Daniel Dumile aka MF DOOM passed away on 31 October 2020.
Only 49. It was unknown until his widow broke the news on 31st December. No cause
of death has been revealed so far.

Jasmine (his widow): “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.”

Thom Yorke (Radiohead): “He was a massive inspiration to so many of us,
changed things.. for me the way he put words was often shocking in its genius,
using a stream of consciousness in a way I’d never heard before.”

Busta Rhymes: “He figured out something that none of us
has before him and that was to be completely free!!!”
