Before odd-ball rap became the trend du jour, Kool Keith was the godfather. From horrorcore to pornocore, he's done it all without losing any of his gusto in the 20-plus years since founding the ultra-weird Ultramagnetic MCs. He'll showcase his abstract abilities once again on his upcoming album, Love & Danger, scheduled to drop later this year. Bring your camera, because you never know which Kool Keith alias (Black Elvis, Dr. Octagon, Mr. Nogatco, et al.) he might have in tow.
