Horrorcore/Weird-Hop pioneer Kool Keith has many guises (Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis) and brings a tonne of collaborators along for his latest journey into oddness. Features MF DOOM, Dirty Nasty, Necro and Psycho Les of The Beatnuts. If you look for a little (a lot) more than just a boom bap, this is your man.
New business from old legend and Ultramagnetic MC Mr Kool Keith. Here he’s presenting himself as Tashan Dorrsett, a conceptual alter-ego first introduced in 2009; except now the character is The Preacher. Whatever the narrative, Keith has the flow, and producer Junkaz Lou has the beat-science. Tracklist includes instrumental versions of all tracks.
