MF Doom died on Halloween during the first year of the pandemic, but some of Tampa’s biggest heads—Slopfunkdust, DJ Casper, DJ Qeys and Scorpio Vision—are going to celebrate what would’ve been the 51st birthday of truly iconic rapper and producer during a MF Doom tribute event on Wednesday, July 13 at Crowbar in Ybor City.

Only tracks made by the man born Daniel Dumile, plus any that sample his music, will be allowed in the playlist.

Tampa design house A Blowfly Joint will have a special Doom shirt to release at the gig.
