MF Doom, the British-born artist who performed in a supervillain mask and started his rapping career more than 30 years ago, died on Oct. 31 of unknown causes, his wife announced Thursday (Dec. 31) — exactly two months after his death. He was 49 years old.
“Begin all things by giving thanks to THE ALL!” Jasmine wrote in the post about her late husband (born Daniel Dumile) on the MF Doom Instagram account. “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.”
Jasmine ended her note by also sending love to her late son, Malachi Ezekiel Dumile, who died in 2017 at age 14. “Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always,” the message concluded. “May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet. All my Love, Jasmine.”
