UPDATE ON MOSDOOM CHICAGO - THE PROMOTER SPEAKS - Idol Threat: Warning Shots at the Mainstream


Tuesday, February 16, 2010


Apparently the whole situation with DOOM has once again sparked mad controversy everywhere, and on the Galapagos 4 forum specifically (Galapagos is home to one of the opening acts, Qwel & Maker) there was a lot of heated posts. So much so the promoter decided to chime in himself, he seemed genuinely apologetic and has a previously successful track record that shouldn’t be tarnished by this one event.

In my opinion DOOM is the one responsible for anyone feeling “robbed” by the performance and Clubtix and/or The Congress theater is responsible for the horrible organization for the Will Call line that left some people waiting for 2 hours in the cold when they had already paid for their ticket. Here’s what the promoter “Harry Knuckles” had to say about what went down that night:
"...But the sad matter of fact is right now, is even now we can't prove that wasn't Daniel Dumile. Here's how shit went down that night. it was an all-in deal so they booked all their own flights and hotel and ground trans. Doom sent his dj to do soundcheck, just line checks, so it's understandable and common that the prima-donna (sp?) headliners don't bother to check themselves. Like Mos, he was maaaad late to his set times and from what I hear from the agent, he is just super secretive and anti-social. So we're thinking "ok, Mos is here, and this is just part of Doom's mystique" Then, Doom's crew pulls up 15 people deep. Everybody comes out of the car except for Doom. Again, according to the agent, this is typical Doom.
Then just as his set is supposed to start, dood jumps out of the car, runs in behind his huge hypeman, grabs a mic and runs on stage. At no point did we have time to fingerprint him or draw blood for inspection. And IMO, seriously, the dood looked like him, like Zev Love X. yes it was pretty obvious that the guy was lip-syncing, but we can't say that it wasn't Dumile. If Dumile lip-syncs because he is too fat, alcoholic and out of breath to spit his own verse, I guess that's what it has come to now

....soooooo right now we are working on somehow attaining some kind of proof that it wasn't Daniel Dumile, because for all we know as of right now, it was...and he just sux at performing. We're working with investigators and lawyers to attain all and any evidence so that if need be we can show people it was really him, and he's just a fucko, or if we find proof that it wasn't him, we can bring legal action against him and be able to make it right with those who attended. But as of right now, until we can find proof otherwise, all we know is that it was Doom and he's a shitbag.

Doom's camp claims it was really him and promised us a statement by the end of the day."
