MF Doom is not famous. He's well known and celebrated within a certain group of music fans. But he's not famous.
MF Doom is famous, dude. Pitchfork is the most read music “magazine” in he country, and they have videos about him, put his solo and group albums on their lists (to name a site where his lists have appeared), and they blow sunshine up his ass.
He’s not Kanye famous, but he’s famous.
MF Doom is *cult* famous, maybe, but famous nonetheless. His fans are RAVENOUS, and I’m pretty sure the mask is a known thing in music culture overall.
