Kool Keith

is a man of a thousand faces. As the mastermind of the Ultramagnetic MC’s he recorded «Critical Beatdown» in 1988 – probably the best hip hop album of all time. As a solo artist he confuses everyone with countless pseudonyms (Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis, Dr. Dooom, Poppa Large, Joe Kingpin) and extremely explicit lyrics. Nevertheless Rhythm X (another one of his thousand aliases) is one of the best rappers of the world.
