Biography

Def vs Doom is a compilation of remixed songs by Mos Def and MF DOOM.

MOS DEF
Dante Terrell Smith (born December 11, 1973), better known by his stage name Mos Def, is an American rapper and actor. Mos Def started his rap career as a member of the Native Tongue Posse collective and by guesting on albums by Da Bush Babees and De La Soul. He released a well-received album with Talib Kweli as Black Star, and was a major force in the late 1990s underground hip hop explosion spearheaded by Rawkus Records. His name comes from his frequent use of an abbreviated ‘mos def’ in place of the words “most definitely”.

Initially recognized for his musical output, Def’s screen work since the early 2000s has established him as one of only a handful of rappers who have garnered critical approval for their acting work. Def is also an outspoken critic on social and political issues, and was particularly vocal in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

DANIEL DUMILE (MF DOOM)
Daniel Dumile (pronounced /duːməleɪ/) (born January 9, 1971) is an American hip hop artist who has taken on several stage names in his career—originally Zev Love X, most famously MF DOOM, and in side projects such as King Geedorah, Metal Fingers, Viktor Vaughn, and collaboration projects such as DANGERDOOM and Madvillain. He remains one of the most popular and critically acclaimed indie artists today. Little is known about his personal life, though he did reveal in a 2006 interview on his MySpace page that he is married with two children, one of them teenage.
