Jasmine, the singer’s wife, who broke the sad news on the deceased’s Instagram page on Friday, said he died on October 31.

She described MF Doom as the greatest husband and friend, adding that her world will never be the same without him.

“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,” she wrote.

“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.”

MF Doom kickstarted his music career in 1988 as a member of KMD, a popular American hip hop group.

He, however, took a hiatus from the music scene after KMD was disbanded in 1993 following the demise of DJ Subroc, his brother and member of the group.

MF Doom returned to the music landscape in 1997 and dazzled at several open mic events wearing tights over his face.

He continued to pull the strings with beautiful offerings and earned the admiration of many for wearing a mask during his performances typical of Doctor Doom, a fictional supervillain in Marvel comic books.

Until his death, he released six solo albums and was also known for his collaborations with other music heavyweights including Danger Mouse and Ghostface Killah.
