There’s been alot of talk about MF Doom and the sheisty bullshit he pulled with his December 2007, MJQ Atlanta show. I want you to see for yourself just how fake this show was:
Here’s my argument from my footage:
At the beginning of the video you can hear the hype man’s mike and the sound texture of it. When “Doom’s” performance finally starts you can hear his mike slip on for a second and it not sounding like Doom. It is then quickly flushed out and the fake show ensued.
Here’s the Tight Bros’ MySpace bulletin in its entirety:
“Many apologies go to all of you who came out to the MF DOOM show last night at MJQ and paid $30 of your hard earned money only to watch him lip sinc for 20 minutes at 1:30 in the morning. This was by far one of the single worst experiences I’ve had as a club promoter and I sincerely apologize if you walked away feeling cheated. To make matters even worse MF DOOMS appointed doorman took off with all the money from the door after the show! As soon as we realized the money was stolen we decided to help ourselves to all of MF DOOMS merchandise which included a bunch of T shirts and posters. So, in an effort to make it up to everyone who walked away feeling cheated, we’re giving away all the merchandise for free so come and get it while supplies last!! And if that’s not enough, feel free to let MF DOOM aka Daniel Dumile know how you really feel by calling him at his home in Kennesaw Georgia.
All the best,
Randy Castello / Tight Bros Network”
And here’s further photographic proof originally posted in another, more recent bulletin from Tight Bros. The left column features the “MF Doom” at the Atlanta show, while the right is the impostor for that evening, close friend and fellow Atlanta resident, DJ WESU:
No matter how much I love this infamous masked villain’s flow, I am growing tired of the mistreatment he gives to his fans! I was highly excited about the new MadVillain album coming out this year, but I will be only happily downloading that one illegally! Sorry, MadLib, but you need to talk to your boy!
And it turns out this faking thing is by no means something new!
Here’s another video of a questionable performance at Rock the Bells, NYC – July 29 (watch closely at 1:20):
Why take advantage of your fans like that? For being known for his, once homeless, “rags to riches” story, he really seems to forget one of the most important things that has helped get him to where he is today, his FANS!
I have a feeling that all this is some sort of a scandalous publicity stunt derived for some attention before his next album drops, but I don’t want to think that it really is coming down to artists faking overpriced club shows for press. Its disgusting!
You are driving away your fanbase through the abuse of your mask!
It looks like your new persona should be MF DOUCHE!!!
