Why did MF Doom wear a mask?
Taking the name Doctor Doom from the Fantastic Four supervillain, MF Doom started dressing like the Marvel Comics antagonist.
Even on the cover of the 1999 album Operation Doomsday, Doctor Doom is shown rapping.
Dumile told the New Yorker that the mask “came out of necessity”.
He planned to use this character to refer to different albums, giving him a whole backstory.
“The story came together, and it worked and became popular. And now people wanted to see shows, and I thought, how do I do that?
“I wanted to get up on stage and talk without people thinking about the normal things people think about,” said Dumile.
“Like girls saying, ‘Oh, he’s s*xy,’ or ‘I don’t want him, he’s ugly,’ and then other guys take a look at you. A visual always gives a first impression.
“But if there’s a first impression, I might as well use it to control the story. So why not do something like put on a mask?” he added.
“I am the writer, I am the director. If I went out without the mask on, they would say, ‘Who is this?’”
