Kool Keith
22 March, 2009 7:20 pm

Today’s music fan believes that if artists truly want us to put down our hard-earned money for their products, they have to stop treating the music as disposable. But perhaps the other side of the argument can be presented instead: why should an artist put forth his or her best work on a project when music [cont.]

Kool Keith has always been one for reinvention, but also one to revisit the same concepts over and over again. On one hand, we’ve seen Keith perform under various identities and member to numerous groups, each of his respective projects coming with a different sound or style. However, the most successful of these offshoots was [cont.]

Kool Keith and Kut Masta Kurt were instrumental in the creation of indie hip-hop’s big bang during the late 1990′s. Through releases on the Funky Ass Records label (with the innovative use of the 12inch label), such as Sex Style and the Big Willie Smith EP, as well as the Dr. Octagon record for Mo’ [cont.]

    The producers of the recent Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy film adaptation got it all wrong. Mos Def may have the acting chops, but when it comes to suspension of disbelief, there could be no better Prefect Ford than Kool Keith. The veteran artist, formerly of Ultramagnetic MC’s, is on full display with Nogatco [cont.]

      With the release of Dr. Octagon, Kool Keith reinvented himself; no longer was he the star of Ultramagnetic MC’s, but now a full-fledged solo artist. After the release of this classic LP, Keith followed up with two more excellent releases, Sex Style, and Dr. Dooom. Both showcased Keith’s strange, spaced-out style, each with their [cont.]

    Kool Keith’s back again, and this time around he isn’t Dr. Octogon, Dr. Dooom or Keith Matthew, but he is the Kool Keith you have all come to know, and maybe love too.  He still has the lyrics that cannot be compared to those of any other MC, clowning rappers and females, talking about animals [cont.]

Hey, I like Kool Keith. Really. But every album he’s put out since Dr. Octagon have practically been the same. Keith excels as these bizarre, stream of consciousness rhymes that invent new ways to disrespect you. It’s all wildly entertaining – I mean, Keith says on “Stank MC’s”, “I’ll slap you with a condom” Who the [cont.]

Much like your typical popular rappers, (all whom are biting his originality, as he would be sure to tell you), Kool Keith brings his latest project, just under a year since his last solo effort. Picking up somewhere where Matthew left off, Spankmaster should hold over the legions of Keith’s fans for a while, bringing [cont.]

Kool Keith Thornton is back with his Diesel Trucker beat maker Kutmasta Kurt  on this year s most unprecedented release, Matthew . Despite, recent discrepancies, both put aside their differences for the good of hip-hop, and deliver some of the same chemistry last heard on Dr. Dooom . For those in the know, the creative [cont.]

When we arrived in Los Angeles, we met with Kool Keith’s manager, Jeremy Larner to interview the legendary Kool Keith, and to sit down with him and design HipHopSite.Com’s latest offshoot project, KoolKeith.Net. Keith wasn’t there yet, so I started to shoot the breeze with J. We got to talking and I started to ask [cont.]

Just when you thought you figured him out, Kool Keith flips the script, once again. “I mean, is the it just more of the same misogynist bullshit and rhymes that don’t make sense album after album?” cried the skeptics when Keith decided to start dropping albums left and right over the last few years. To the [cont.]

The Doctor is in, but it’s not the one you think. This mysterious new characater project begins with an emergency page for the good Dr. Octagon to tend to patient with rabies. Instead what he finds is his angry, pistol packing, evil alter-ego, who tells him “Take two of these and call me in the motherfucking [cont.]
