    This was cool, but it didn’t really make up for the fact that Mos was 5 1/2 hours late (which resulting in the doors staying closed for an hour and a half longer than they were supposed to so we waited outside in the snow) and offered no apology or explanation – the best we got was a harsh “Calm down, we’re here now, Jesus Christ”. He also only did a 20 minute set after that long ass wait AND he was totally unprepared – no set list or anything. He spent about 1/3 of his time onstage talking to his DJ (only one of whom showed up – Gold Medal Man was missing in action) trying to figure out what to play next. He also told the crowd directly “DOOM is here. You have no faith,” knowing full well that it was just a DOOMposter. This probably explains why he virtually ran offstage once the fake DOOM entered. No encore. No explanation. Bad show. I saw him in Portland in August and he was amazing so wtf happened in Chicago? A sold-out crowd of 4000+ demands an explanation.

    Hey, thanks for the post.

    Mos’ set wasn’t bad at all. It wasn’t as fluent as others but im sure they improvized because they(doom and def) were late and couldn’t stay on stage all night. I do feel like mos seemed disappointed with the crowds hostility but he handled it well.

    The biggest hint that Mos was aware of fake doom was when he said “He’s Not Coming, He’s Not Going, He’s Right Here” while he covered accordion”i chopped the video short because people have short attention spans lol.

    He also said on stage “you keep asking wheres doom, He’s around, he’s here, oh ye of little faith… be cool spread love its the Brooklyn way” I know Mos did those Doom songs to appease the doom fans though, that was good enough for me.

    GOT DOOM? …. For a more in-depth discussion of the MFDOOM saga, as well as of course, the most insight that you’ll EVER get into the Artist enigma that we call MFDOOM, from one of his closest confidants – check out the website at http://gotdoom.metalfacerecords.com. Please also note that all participation is FREE–all feedback and comments are listed in the order that they are received–and had been explicitly-requested sometime late last year by MFDOOM, himself.
