The 49-year-old born in London rapper was well-known for his hip albums "Mm… Food" and his iconic collaboration with Madlib, "Madvillainy." He was usually seen wearing a mask in public and onstage – his mask was inspired by the Marvel comic villain Doctor Doom, which he revealed along with the release of his 1999 album "Operation: Doomsday."
While talking to a media organization, he revealed why he preferred to have a mask on onstage. He said that he wanted people not to think about his appearance when he's on stage performing. He said, "I don't want people thinking about the normal things people think about like girls being like, Oh he's sexy,' or 'I don't want him, he's ugly," the rapper said that the persona's appearances always bring the first impression, so he wanted to control his listeners first impression about him by throwing a mask on.
The sudden passing of the rapper came as a shock in the hip hop world. Shortly after his death's news made public, several artists offer their condolences and tributes to Daniel's life and music. Rapper Q-Tip offered his condolences on Twitter, writing, "RIP to another Giant your favorite MC's MC… MF DOOM!! Crushing news…."
