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 his
career. Dumile's eccentric wordplay makeshim a favorite of underground hip-hop fans. He is heavily influenced by American comic books(especially
the Fantastic Four and their battles with Dr. Doom). Japanese science fiction is also aninfluence; the concept for King Geedorah (which is derived from
Ghidorah) and the Monsta Island Czarscomes from the Godzilla movie series. He is also renowned for bringing comedy back into thesometimes overly
serious world of rap lyrics and a unique, sample-heavy production style.
