According to sources close to the legendary rapper/producer MF DOOM, he died on 10/31/20.

Doom's style is difficult to pinpoint, as he was able to rap fast with a slow, booming baritone, while delivering his lines in a cadence that was like no other before him. He made what he was doing seem effortless, but he was undoubtedly giving it his all.

With that said, I welcome all of you to sound off in the comments about any records that you feel should have been on my list. 2020 has taken us on a crazy ride that was seemingly never going to end, but the artists have spoke
