DOOM MF left an indelible mark on the Hip-Hop landscape, and his influence can be seen in other lyric makers like him. The late Daniel Dumile was something of an enigma, and a new biography hopes to partially lift the veil of the “Supervillain.”

As reported by Okayplayer, SH journalist Fernando Jr. will publish The Chronicles of Doom: Unraveling Rap’s Masked Iconoclast via Astra House. The publisher posted a tweet Tuesday, May 17 announcing the title, which illustrates the upcoming arc of DOOM’s life story.

From the Astra house:

In THE CHRONICLES OF DOOM, @SkizFernand will chronicle the rise, fall, redemption and untimely demise of Daniel Dumile AKA

@MFDOOM, one of rap’s most enigmatic and influential figures, from KMD to @adultswim, to having escaped death in the public eye for months before his announcement.

As seen on Publishers Marketplace Deal Report, Astra House says of The Chronicles of Doom that it “will chronicle the rise, fall, redemption and untimely demise of one of the world’s most enigmatic and influencers of Hip Hop”.

According to the report, The Chronicles of Doom: Unraveling Rap’s Masked Iconoclast will be released in 2024. It’s unclear if the biography is endorsed by the Dumile family, but we’ve reached out to multiple sources for confirmation.

MF DOOM passed away on October 31, 2020, according to reports from his family. The reasons for the famed rapper’s death are unknown, but the loss continues to weigh heavily on the minds of MF DOOM fans.

If we are able to obtain additional information regarding the biography, we will update this report.
