The passing of MF DOOM impacted many in the music industry, as the rapper’s death was revealed months after his passing.
Many like Madlib, Freddie Gibbs, and more spoke about the late rapper’s impact. Now, a petition has surfaced, with the intention of naming a New York street after MF DOOM. The petition was launched by Dr. Patrick Graham, who wrote a note on behalf of the KMD-MF DOOM Way Committee. The blurb on the petition said, “Mr. Dumile represents the ability to grow through tragedy and unite people around common themes. We need more individuals like him during this time of political and social divisions. Mr. Dumile still inspires many young people to view the potential of everyday life. Long Beach should be proud of its native son and honor him and his legacy on a street sign. Just as important, the city should embrace the unity Mr. Dumile represents for generations to come.”
The cause of death for DOOM is still unknown, and the rapper was reportedly almost done with the follow-up to ‘Madvillianly’ with collaborator Madlib.
