Reclusive rap legend MF DOOM passed away in October 2020 but his handwritten book of lyrics and rhymes remains with record label exec Eothen “Egon” Alapatt … at least according to DOOM’s widow.
TMZ Hip Hop obtained a statement from DOOM’s widow claiming Alapatt still has her late husband’s rhyme book. Jasmine Dumile tells us there have been many unsuccessful attempts to get back the documents, even before DOOM passed.
She adds, “We had hoped after DOOM transitioned Egon would do the right thing and return the books to the family but he has continued to ignore these requests. Unfortunately, Egon is not the only former associate abusing the likeness, art and life’s work of DOOM.”
Egon owns Now-Again Records, and is a business partner of producer Madlib, DOOM’s renowned collaborator from their 2004 effort “Madvillainy.”
However, Jasmine would not specify which “former associate” referring to in her statement — she said she’ll say more when it’s “appropriate.”
