Everybody remembers KMD for launching a young Zev Love X’s career, during which he became known as MF DOOM. But the group’s work is not to be overlooked: Mr. Hood is a classic piece of '90s hip hop with a tonne of twisted sampling, tight flows and catchy beats in general. Part of your hip hop education, son!

- Mr. Hood by KMD
8/10 Jack 16th April 2015
For many new MF Doom fans, it's real hard to believe that he rhymed under the name Zev Love X, in a group called K.M.D. that also consisted of his brother DJ Subroc, and Onyx The Birthstone Kid (aka Rodan). In 1991, they dropped their first album Mr. Hood, with the single "Peachfuzz" which became a well known hit. The album itself is mostly based on a fictional character named Mr. Hood, who's voice is pasted together by instructional tapes (or so I heard). Some of the skits that feature Mr. Hood are quite entertaining, such as "Mr. Hood Meets Onyx", and "Mr. Hood Gets A Haircut".
