The Death of Mf Doom
MF Doom’s wife explained that the rapper had been suffering from multiple health conditions like kidney disease and high blood pressure. His health issues caused him to gain weight and have anxiety.
To treat his medical conditions, he was put on angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Especially to control his blood pressure. But life had other plans, shortly after taking the second dose of ACE inhibitors he developed a severe adverse reaction.
He started having difficulty in breathing and had a swollen tongue and throat. This condition is also known as angioedema. After the reaction, he was rushed to the ER in the St. James Hospital in Leeds.

MF Doom’s Cause of Death
The doctors after noticing the swelling of Doom’s throat and tongue, declared that his cause of death was angioedema, which is a rarely occurring side-effect of ACE inhibitors. Angioedema is similar to hives but the only difference is that it is not visible on the skin.
There were a few questions raised regarding the competency of hospital staff in providing care to the rapper.

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 them another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write them off. Thank you for showing me 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.”
