MF DOOM‘s widow has written a heartfelt message for the late rapper on the two-year anniversary of his death.
Jasmine Dumile took to DOOM’s Instagram account on Monday (October 31) to share a photo of his iconic mask next to a cake that read: “We Miss U Old Dad!!!” She went on to describe her heartache and how she still tears up when talking about her late husband or listening to his music.
“Begin all things by giving Thanks to THE ALL,” she wrote. “Today we celebrate DOOMSDAY for all those whom have gone before us. I now understand what Daniel was going through after his brother Raheem transitioned.
“It’s an ache that is so deep it does not go away. I cry when I speak of him and cry when I hear the music. It is tears of joy of having the pleasure to have been with the man whom many call DOOM, we call him Old Dad. You will always be missed.”
She added: “Thank you to all of the MF DOOM Fans. Thank you for all of your continued love and support. It means a lot. Peace and Blessing to All. HAPPY DOOMSDAY !!!!!! – Oh Oh The Widow Dumile.”
Jasmine Dumile announced MF DOOM’s death on Instagram on December 31, 2020, revealing he had passed away two months prior.
“The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for,” she wrote at the time. “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.”
MF DOOM’s rhyme books were reportedly stolen earlier this year, with Dumile confirming the news in a statement to HipHopDX.
“We can confirm Eothen ‘Egon’ Alapatt is illegally in possession of rhyme books owned by MF DOOM,” she said. “There have been many unsuccessful attempts to get these back prior to DOOM’s passing. We had hoped after DOOM transitioned Egon would do the right thing and return the books to the family but he has continued to ignore these requests.”
She added: “Unfortunately, Egon is not the only former associate abusing the likeness, art and life’s work of DOOM, more will be said at the appropriate time.”
