    The world recently learnt of the passing of rap supervillain MF DOOM. Both prolific and elusive, MF DOOM embodied the phrase "your rapper's favourite rapper" more than maybe anyone else who's ever touched a mic.

    DOOM's wife Jasmine announced his passing on social media, with MF DOOM passing on October 31st, 2020. She posted, "Begin all things by giving thanks to THE ALL! To Dumile, The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for. Thank you for all the things you have shown, taught and given to me, our children and our family.

    "Thank you for teaching me how to forgive beings and give another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write off. Thank you for showing how not to be afraid to love and be the best person I could ever be.

    "My world will never be the same without you. Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always. May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet. All my Love, Jasmine. Transitioned October 31, 2020"

    Tributes poured in from all corners of the music world and beyond, including the likes of Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Anderson .Paak and many, many more.

    We've collated their tributes below to highlight the impact that MF DOOM had on hip-hop. Having worked alongside the likes of Madlib, Danger Mouse and countless others, DOOM inspired generations of rappers with his lyrical wordplay and effortless-sounding flow. He also happened to love a practical joke, using the iconic DOOM mask to send imposters along to shows in his place. 

    RIP MF DOOM. One of the greatest to ever do it.
