After some visual representations of DOOM lyrics, here’s the latest installment of Frank151‘s video series focusing on their metal-masked guest curator. This is an insightful interview with Blake Lethem, the man behind the mask. He’s not DOOM, but he worked with the Villain to design his disguises.
Lethem (also known as KEO and SCOTCH 79) is a graffiti writer, designer, emcee, and raconteur from Brooklyn whose stories go much deeper than his time spent with the Villain.
In this video Blake talks about graffiti, the first (surprising) prototypes of the mask, the innovation of DOOM’s old crew KMD, and how DOOM could drink a beer at the bar before his shows without being recognized: a true hip hop villain.
