Fans of the late rapper MF Doom have been left less than impressed with his inclusion on the Joe Biden inauguration playlist.
As reported by UPROXX, criticism from fans stems from Doom being barred from reentering the US after he concluded an overseas tour back in 2010.
Born in England and raised in America from infancy, Doom never applied for US citizenship despite having lived there for most of his life.
As a result, he spent the last decade of his life in England, which included the time period Joe Biden was vice president to Barack Obama.
Given Doom was blocked from reentering the country during Biden’s tenure as vice president, many fans are questioning the sensitivity of including his music on the playlist.

It was a Democratic administration – the one that Biden was part of, as VP – that denied MF Doom the ability to return back to the US with his family. It’s unbelievable that anyone would think he would feel honored by being acknowledged in such an inauthentic manner. https://t.co/XZDgYHPVlp

MF DOOM died in a foreign country because Joe Biden’s president wouldn’t let him come back to his homeland. https://t.co/b2buZ6fTSj

Joe Biden’s previous administration blocked MF DOOM from re-entering the US, which is why he died in the UK.
