This one is strange. From what I've read, he died in Oct. but it's only being announced at the end of the year.

Underrated MC and beatmaker- Doom's music and cameo features always had a weird quirk about them. Hate that we never got the Ghostface/Doom collabo that they were hinting at back in the day...

We were.

JerseyKRS hipped me to him when Madvillainy dropped. I had no idea he was back in the game and I;m so sad we didn't get another album from Madvillain. But he endured a lot of health issues and tragedy.

@RJOrion and @Namepeace: Kon Karne is one of my favorite Doom joints because of how he managed to flip the Sade sample- didn't know until yesterday that Subrocc was his brother...

i got put on to DOOM from listening to 3rd Bass... back when MFDOOM was still Zev Love X ...him and his brother Subroc(RIP) were KMD..they had verses on one of 3rd Bass' classic joints, "The GasFace"...KMD disappeared for years after that, and Zev Love X resurfaced years later, always wearing his legendary MFDOOM aka Viktor Vaughn mask.. and spitting next level bars full of advanced wordplay, creative storytelling, with that grimey New York flow...he was alot of our favorite MCs, favorite MC

I met him twice in 2018 (one time was over Skype) and again in 2019. I don't like to do that whole KCOOLMUSIQ thing of mentioning everyone I've "worked with" but given the circumstances I think it's ok. He was a nice guy. I didn't and still don't know much of his work to be honest but personally he was pretty cool. He called me a "white devil" lol. All in jest, of course. His son had died not long before so he was understandably a bit quiet, kept himself to himself mostly.

So I didn't exactly know him and I doubt he would have remembered me (I had to introduce myself as "white devil" when I met him in 2019 to remind him who I was) but it's sad to hear he died.

He's good about flipping those Sade jewels.

Maybe the greatest hip-hop record ever made - absolutely moved beyond words every time I hear it.

I was into KMD and had no idea Subroc had passed and that sparked his seclusion and mask wearing. and to also lose a son, he was quite resilient. so sad. I'm going to cop some stuff now. I saw the name but thought he was just new and weird, not a reinvented holdover from my favorite era of hip hop. that Ghostface collab would've been epic
