Content description .
Madvillian

 

West wall. Image of Mad Lib and Quasimoto. Are depicted to represent beat-making, 
sampling, and the sound of rap music . Some of the props in the scene is an MPC, crates 
of Records, speakers, and the large electric piano / Ensoniq ASR 10.
The MADVILLIAN graffiti style in whites and greys meeting the ground combines both walls by using the title of the joint project between MF Doom and Madlib. Also, the Green Halo behind Mad Lib's head spells out 'America's most blunted' in graffiti letters, this is also a joint project between MF Doom and Madlib.

 

Tomb of MF DOOM:
Is a humble, sincere visual depiction of the evolution of DANIEL DUMILE into M.F DOOM
The viaduct side of the wall
Daniel Dumile / Zev Love X: young mf doom, before the mask. KMD era
MF DOOM: the alter ego of Zeb luv x
MF DOOM /SUPER VILLIAN : The Rapper, MC, Producer
DR. DOOM: Inspiration to the MF Doom alter ego
RAP CONCERT CROWD: the audience is what gives the artist power and Legacy.

Artist motive:
MF DOOM:
Rahmaan Statik respect The Artist M.F DOOM as a creative muse and source of inspiration, living or diseased.
-The things Statik respects about DOOM's creative powers is that he merged graffiti structured visual elements , 
Jack Kurby illustrated DR. DOOM comic panels, street tales and 70's soul and rock music, to make a gritty soulful 
Boom Bap! sound.
-MF DOOM is also a Graffiti writer.
- Daniel Dumile is your favorite living artist, favorite artist.

MADLIB
West coast sampling and beat making pioneer.
Innovated the art of audio collages by using portions of various funk, soul, rock, jazz, and reggae music.
