Biography

Alter ego of rapper Daniel Dumile. Other alter egos include MF DOOM, Metal Fingers, Doom and King Geedorah.

The name Viktor Vaughn comes from Victor Von Doom, the real name of Fantastic Four arch-enemy Dr. Doom.

Doom stated, in the song ‘Doom on Vik’: “Vik is more cutting edge, whatever the new stuff is or these new MC’s are doing. But he still appreciates the old school art of rhyming. So there’s still a level of sincerity to Viktors stuff, but it’s still younger and newer, you know what I’m saying? And he rhymes over whatever beat, it don’t matter.” From another interview: “Like, Viktor, he supposed to be like a younger cat. Like, maybe a sophomore in high school type shit. So, his whole attitude has to be different. He’s like, more spontaneous, spunky, you know what I’m saying? He got little funny stuff to say here and there. It’s more from a younger guys perspective. I had to really get into character. It wasn’t that hard, though. It’s just a matter of remembering how it was back then at that time and just capturing that in lyrics.” And also from another interview: “Viktor Vaughn is like a Bizarro Doom, if I can use that expression and whatnot. He’s like the Doom from another dimension. But at the same time, it’s another timeline, you know? Doom is known to dabble in science and technology here and there. But then Vik, in his dimension, technology might’ve been a little further along, so he had access to maybe quantum mechanics and all that a little earlier.

    You on the battlefield with lyrical militants That know he feelin' bent when he see lil' pink elephants And never forget, to memorize the elements Keep the mic sterilized, terrorize your eloquence

    this guy could sell time to an inmate, could sell a chinese half-price seafood, could trade you a couple of gallons of water for your cutest daughter, rolls the best old L's, does a bid for a little kid like Sling Blade, wishes all the rap crews acting like a violent mob would really just shut the fuck up like Silent Bob, separates cell wounds to Melle Mel boom, claps on and claps off, leaves the track backbroken, and did a duet jam with Ernest Goes to Camp.

    @GodWirftgu nah its not DOOM. Its Daniel Dumile. DOOM and Vik are completely different and shouldn't be lumped together

    Viktor the director flip a script like Rob Reiner The way a lotta dudes rhyme their name should be "knob shiner" For a buck, they'd likely dance the Jig or do the Hucklebuck To Vik it's no big deal, they're just a buncha knuckle-fucks

    V I can agree with that statement, although I think Madvillainy is better as a whole. Can anyone tell me if he samples Biggie's song Warning in Lickupon??
