Q & A :

Keith Matthew Thornton, better known by his stage name Kool Keith, is an American Hip hop artist. A founding member of Ultramagnetic MCs, Kool Keith has recorded prolifically both as a solo artist and in group collaborations. Kool Keith is the self-proclaimed inventor of both the 'Horrorcore' and 'Pornocore' subgenres of Hip Hop. Keith is a rapper and record producer whose bizarre lyrical style, hallucinatory imagery and constant re-invention have made him a "Cult" figure in the world of underground Hip-Hop. While Keith started out as a member of the famed New York rap crew the Ultramagnetic MC's, it was his debut album (as alias Dr. Octagon) that shot him to prominence. The Dan The Automator-produced album became a classic and helped spawn a new genre called Acid Rap. Since killing off Dr. Octagon, Keith has written and recorded albums using a number of different aliases, including Dr. Dooom and Black Elvis.
