Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) and Lupe Fiasco are paying their respects to MF DOOM with a tribute and freestyle.
Both artists took to social media to share their love of the late rapper, with Yasiin Bey posting his 2014 take on the Madvillainy cut, “All Caps.” Meanwhile, Lupe Fiasco dropped a freestyle and proposed changing the word “simile” to “Dumile” — MF DOOM’s legal last name. “Thanx DOOM…I learned so much from you about the art of rapping. Studied and analyzed you for years as recently as a few days ago. I wish I could’ve met you to tell you that. here’s some raps…rest easy…Amin…” he tweeted with the freestyle, adding, “To whom it may concern: I ask and propose that from this point forward all rappers from everywhere and from every style and every level in the craft refer to “Similes” as “Dumiles.” Pronounced “Doom-ah-lays.” A small gesture for a fallen master. MF DOOM. Can I get a 2nd?”
