Two veteran rappers can't get it together for one show in Toronto
The Mos Def and DOOM concert looks like it was doomed from the start.
Originally scheduled a month ago, the concert was pushed back until tonight (Thursday). The delay was mostly attributed to the erratic, mysterious behaviour of Daniel Dumile, stage name DOOM.
DOOM, known by as many aliases as he has albums (MF Doom is his most well-known handle), goes in and out of character so convincingly he may not be faking it. Little is actually known about him, he lies in interviews and he wears a mask at all times.
And his connection to Toronto is an awkward one anyway. In 2005, he married a former stripper from Mississauga at Toronto City Hall. After their divorce (or are they divorced?), she wrote a tell-all book about their brief relationship.
The show must go on, though. That is, unless DOOM decides to send in a doppelgänger.
In an attempt to quell rumours about that, promoters promise to demand the now-headlining DOOM for identification before allowing him on stage. If he turns out to be an impostor, then there will be no headliner at all.
Will the metal face rapper show? Will there even be a show?
