Daniel Dumile is a British-American hip hop artist who has taken on several stage names (KingGeedorah, MF DOOM, ViktorVaughn, Zev Love X) in his career. Dumile's eccentric wordplay makes him 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 an influence; the concept for King Geedorah (which is derived from Ghidorah) and the Monsta Island Czars comes from the Godzilla movie series. He is also renowned for bringing comedy back into the sometimes overly serious world of rap lyrics and a unique, sample-heavy production style.
