Metal Face Imposter?

Nah Right posted this link from The Kaos Effect, detailing a show "MF DOOM" did in the A on the 13th of December, and it mirrors countless tales of fake/imposter Dooms showing up, lip synching short sets, then making a quick dash, sometimes with the money from the door!

This one is deeper, though, because this is the first time I've seen actual video of the suspect DOOM. Check this out:

I mean, I've never seen DOOM live, but I've heard live recordings. For his kind of style on wax, his voice is one style, but live it's a different story. The environment calls for DOOM to almost shout his lines, because his recordings are a bit smoother, not the "raow-raow" of say a Busta or Onyx. Translating that live would mean he'd have to kick his voice out a bit more, and with his actual voice, it would come out a bit different. Dude looks too calm and collected in these shits. Just mad suspect - makes me feel bad that I've supported dude all these years.

The thing is, maybe it's DOOM pulling his own Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton kind of thing? I highly doubt it, but if you break it down, it's an interesting parallel.

At the end of the day, the people getting cheated are the people DOOM is cheating out of ends and support, which will only lead to backlash and hatred. I'd say fix up, but I guess if it ain't broke, keep stealin'.

That sounds like DOOM Live not lip syncing and it looks like his persona. I think it's DOOM !
