slice-a nice verse pie

MetalFace Doom

Daniel Dumile (pronounced /duːməleɪ/) is a British born American hip hop artist who has taken on several stage names in his career, most notably MF Doom, standing for M(etal) F(ace) Dum(ile). He has also been known as Viktor Vaughn, Zev Love X, King Geedorah, Metal Fingers, and the Supervillain. He has appeared in several collaborative projects such as Danger Doom (with Danger Mouse) and Madvillain (with Madlib).

With the loss of his brother, Dumile retreated from the hip-hop scene from 1994-1997. He testifies to disillusionment and depression, living "damn near homeless, walking the streets of Manhattan, sleeping on benches".[3][1] In the late 1990s, he left New York City and settled in Atlanta. According to interviews with Doom, he was also "recovering from his wounds" and swearing revenge "against the industry that so badly deformed him."

Dumile began to rap at open mic events at the Nuyorican Poets Café in 1998 where he obscured his face by putting a stocking over his head. His new identity was influenced by Marvel Comics supervillain Doctor Doom. He wears the mask while performing and isn't photographed without it, except for very short glimpses in videos such as Viktor Vaughn's "Mr. Clean" and in earlier photos with KMD

lower your hammers & drop your nails

somewhere between inevitable progression and a prophet as false as the white lie that has been pinned to the cross, barack obama is the indiscernible scapegoat of the american slob. i'm not much for a rant, however, the utter ridiculousness of the pedestal that this man has not but set on, but rather crucified upon, is as grotesque as the blind faith that teeters on his ideological showcase. obama is today's modern day bull god. i sympathize for the man, but i fear for the character that's manifesting in the child-like imaginations of broken pocketed adults. comparisons to jesus christ? it's a half sincere, half joking juxtaposition placed in the peripheral demand of a society desperate for the social, economic, and political quick fix; and baring the stability of a pre-911 world trade center waiting for the final straw to not only break the camels back, but double as the nail to national coffin before it's used to crucify it's makeshift jesus christ.

obama is a man. obama has promising ideas. stop neglecting the reality of the fact barack obama is not your miracle drug. personally i regret to stand firm in my initial belief that very few of his progressive notions with truly come in to the limelight, let alone assert themselves into the mangled mechanics of our american wasteland. there is so much ground that not only needs to be covered, but back tracked and re-trekked upon before the opportunity to present any new policies can truly be explored. it is unfortunate, however, it's a reality. and it's not even a pessimistic outlook, but rather a very real actualization. this isn't a fairy tale; and one man can't save the day. people need to step back and allow time for obama to tackle the existing issues that have been strewn across the oval office for him to sift through and resolve, before they can really expect dramatic change.

learn to support - not just follow.
