Sad news has arrived out of the Rhymesayers Entertainment camp. According to a statement obtained by HipHopDX on Thursday (December 31), MF DOOM has passed away. Known to his countless fans as MetalFace, the elusive MC was famous for his hidden identity, lyrical precision and comic-book persona.

“The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for,” his wife Jasmine wrote. “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.
