Daniel Dumile is a British-American hip hop artist who has taken on several stage names (KingGeedorah, MF DOOM, Viktor
Vaughn, Zev Love X) in hiscareer. Dumile's eccentric wordplay makeshim a favorite of underground hip-hop fans. He is heavily
influenced by American comic books(especiallythe Fantastic Four and their battles with Dr. Doom). Japanese science fiction is
also aninfluence; the concept for King Geedorah (which is derived fromGhidorah) and the Monsta Island Czarscomes from the
Godzilla movie series. He is also renowned for bringing comedy back into thesometimes overlyserious world of rap lyrics and a
unique, sample-heavy production style.
