Our condolences to the rapper

MF DOOM isn’t exactly the type to share aspects of his personal life. He’s performed behind a mask and persona for his entire career (and allegedly used stand-ins when he wasn’t feeling up to performing). The dude is largely a mystery.

But Doom briefly dropped the veil yesterday after his 14-year-old son Malachi passed away.

“KING MALACHI EZEKIEL DUMILE 2/22/03 – 12/18/17 THE GREATEST SON ONE COULD ASK FOR,” he wrote on Instagram underneath a photo of his hand holding a wallet photo of his son. “SAFE JOURNEY AND MAY ALL OUR ANCESTORS GREET YOU WITH OPEN ARMS. ONE OF OUR GREATEST INSPIRATIONS. THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO BE YOUR PARENTS. LOVE YOU MALI.”

There’s no details from Doom about the nature of his son’s death. Still, fans shared their condolences underneath the post, taking the rare opportunity to connect with the man behind MF DOOM.
