MF DOOM Checks In from Quarantine
His acclaimed 'Madvillainy' album turned 16 this week
Published Mar 24, 2020MF DOOM was preaching the importance of hand-washing in 2013 (albeit for very different reasons), and when it comes to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, the masked MC would like to remind you that staying home is also a crucial part of slowing the viral spread.
Though he is largely still "NOT ON TWITTER," DOOM appears to be more active on Instagram, where he confirmed his plans to "STAY IN QUARANTINE" for the time being in a post yesterday (March 23).
While this means he can't officiate weddings or take the boat out with friends, plenty in the comments jokingly asked if he had stocked up on enough "Doritos, Cheetos or Fritos" to last through isolation.
DOOM's message was accompanied by a photo taken during recording sessions for Madvillainy, the 2004 collaborative album made with producer Madlib as Madvillain. The revered record celebrated its 16th anniversary yesterday.
Shot in 2002 by Eric Coleman, the photo finds DOOM at work next to art inspired by 1973 animated sci-fi film La Planète sauvage. Squint hard enough, and you'll recognize Madlib's alter ego Lord Quas as the figure in the palm of the giant blue Draag.
Here's hoping that DOOM and the rest of us will be able to enjoy our Wild Planet together before too long. Late last year, he appeared on Your Old Droog's album Jewelry.
