Some fans also took note on how the Grammys didn’t spell DOOM’s name in all caps.
Huge respect to the Grammys for doing that MF DOOM tribute. I wish they put his name in all caps tho, it’s literally his signature

Just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the man name https://t.co/mJNL0uU3ITTRENDING VIDEOS

On the last day of last year, DOOM’s family announced that the he had passed just two months before.
“The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for,” DOOM’s wife, Jasmine, said in a caption alongside an image of the rapper wearing a New York Knicks jersey on 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.”
If only the Grammys had honored DOOM with a tribute performance, but it’s still cool to see him highlighted — even if his name wasn’t in all caps.
