MF DOOM’s legacy explored in new podcast series
The life and legacy of MF DOOM is to be explored in a new podcast series.
Season 2 of MC Serch’s podcast, Did I Ever Tell You The One About…, will focus on the late hip-hop artist, born Daniel Dumile, and claims to tell the “definitive” story of his life and career.
It comes three decades after MC Serch’s group, 3rd bass, released Dumile’s first recorded music in 1989, when he first performed under the name Zev Love X.
Launching with a two-episode premiere on 25th October, the series will feature contributions from DOOM’s friends, family and collaborators, and will be soundtracked by his music using immersive 5.1 stereo sound. It has been created with the full approval of DOOM’s widow and estate.
