Kool Keith, a.k.a. Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis, and a pioneer purveyor of horrorcore hip-hop, is a household hip-hop name. Hailing from The Bronx, Keith co-founded the seminal rap group Ultramagnetic MCs before pursuing a slew of solo and collaborative projects with the likes of Ice-T, Kutmasta Kurt, and DJ Qbert. With critically acclaimed albums like Dr. Octaconecologyst , Spankmaster & Love & Danger already under his belt, Kool Keith’s latest album, Demolition Crash is out now. “Acura” (b/w Hoodini Feat AG) is the first 7″ of a ltd edition collection including songs from Demolition Crash and exclusive/unreleased B-Sides.
“Hey, it’s time for another bizarro Kool Keith record. Behold “Acura,” one more amusing oddity to add to the Keith canon. This tune ( included on the current Demolition Crash album) is a collaboration with D.I.T.C.’s always reliable AG produced by DJ Junkaz Lou, and featuring a mindbending, molecularrearranging backdrop befitting both emcees. “I heard thugs got a team comin’ up, but they’re all wack/ I’m walkin’ up with the heat, the baby sawed-off, lookin’ like Count Drac,” raps Keith in vintage form. Adds AG: “We international icons/ Slay pythons with venom from my right arm.”
