Daniel Dumile, best know as the rapper and producer MF Doom, died on October 31, his wife and label announced on Thursday afternoon. He was 49.

"To Dumile. The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for," his wife wrote on the official MF Doom Instagram. "Thank you for all the things you have shown, taught and given to me, our children and our family. Thank you for teaching me how to forgive beings and give another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write off. Thank you for showing how not to be afraid to love and be the best person I could ever be.

"My world will never be the same without you. Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always. May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet. All my Love, Jasmine."

No cause of death was provided, only that Dumile had "transitioned" on October 31.

One of the most celebrated, unpredictable and enigmatic figures in independent hip-hop, Dumile was born in London, but relocated to New York City as a child. He began his music career under the name Zev Lov X as part of the trio alongside his brother DJ Subroc, and the group had a minor hit in the early 1990s.

After Subroc was killed in a car accident in 1993, the group disbanded, and Dumile retreated from public view, only to reemerge toward the end of the decade with a new name and an extravagant new persona.

Now calling himself MF Doom and wearing a metal mask inspired by the Marvel Comics villain Dr. Doom, Dumile released "Operation: Doomsday" in 1999. Produced by Dumile himself under the pseudonym Metal Fingers, the album couldn't have been more out of step with hip-hop's mainstream.

Featuring Dumile's signature plainspoken flow and head-spinning volleys of intricate internal rhymes, off-the-wall cultural references and non-sequiturs, the album gained him a sizable cult following.

Dumile's career was anything but straightforward, and he followed up the notoriety gained through "Doomsday" with a flurry of collaborations, instrumental releases and projects under the alternate alias Viktor Vaughn. His aligned with the influential Minneapolis label Rhymesayers for his second album as Doom, "," in late 2004, but it was another project from earlier that year that truly established him among the uppermost ranks of independent hip-hop figures.
