The body doubles often disappointed fans but sparked viral moments online, like when an apparent MF Doom drop-in at a concert turned out to be comedian Hannibal Buress. Which is why he will always be known a "your favourite rappers favourite rapper". MF DOOM's son King Malachi Ezekiel Dumile died at 14 years old in 2017.
