MC Serch and MF DOOM were former collaborators and friends. DOOM and Serch first met when DOOM was 14, according to a tribute piece written by Serch earlier this year after DOOM’s death in October 2020.

Serch’s former band 3rd Bass produced a single called The Gas Face in 1989, which featured an appearance by a young MF DOOM, real name Daniel Dumile, as Zev Love X.

The episodes will take a close look at the life and career of rapper MF DOOM, from his debut as Zev Love X and his first band KMD to his reappearance as the elusive emcee with the signature mask.
