Before we knew him as MF DOOM, the masked rapper was Zev Love X, one-half of KMD. Since today is Election Day, Rappcatts dug up this video of a teenage DOOM speaking at a Senate hearing about the importance of the “Motor Voter” bill, which would allow people to register to vote at the DMV when they get a driver’s license. The bill was eventually vetoed by George H.W. Bush. His face might not be recognizable to newer fans who know him only with the mask, but that voice is unmistakable.
