The Cunninlynguists' DJ Kno Calls Out MF DOOM
On a blog on his label QN5's website, Kno wrote "An Open Letter To MF Doom," criticizing the former KMD frontman for disappointing fans in a number of ways over the years. Included examples are missing shows, lip syncing, repackaging remixed material as new and charging $300 for his MF DOOM Dunks with Nike.
One paragraph states, "Yeah, youre the villain or whatever gimmick you use to sell records. Ive even seen a couple people calling this fiasco brilliant. Oh, the sweet Rap Snack-flavored irony of anti-mainstream types letting this slide by deeming it genius marketing. Genius marketing? Beanie Babies, Hannah Montana, Girls Gone Wild. Those are examples of genius marketing. This looks like a lazy or medically incapacitated individual duping his most dedicated fans repeatedly to the tune of a few thousand dollars while those that also stand to profit (read: labels, friends and booking agents) scuttle around attempting to make excuses for him before the loot dries up."
