The Metal Finger Villian, aka King Geedorah, aka Victor Vaughn, aka MF DOOM, was one of the most prolific underground rappers and producers in hip-hop. The death of MF DOOM’s real-world brother, DJ Subroc, was the tragic origin story of this comic book villain turned hip-hop legend. Unbound by fears of lawsuits or the macho “keep-it-real-ism” of his time, MF DOOM embraced the nerdy, uncool things that helped him grieve for years after his brother's death. Smoking weed and sampling the cartoons he was watching for his beats was how he would spend his time beyond villainous escapades. MF DOOM would pass away on Halloween 2020.
