Once voted the most "notable rap album which was never released commercially", the second album from the New York hip hop trio proved too controversial for release. KMD featured the talents of future star MF DOOM, his brother DJ Subroc and Rodan who worked closely together to create East Coast hip hop with politically charged lyrics and a flair of jazz in the instrumentals. Originally destined for a 1994 release, it was shelved by Elektra due to its controversial sleeve and finally saw the light of day in 2001. 'Bl_ck B_st_rds' is packed full of obscure samples and wacky rhymes. DOOM donned his mask and Metal Face moniker after the untimely death of his brother, charged by a hatred of the industry.
