The Return of Dr. Octagon
10 years ago Dr. Octagon (a.k.a. Kool Keith) released Dr. Octagonecologyst, one of the most influential hip hop albums of the 90’s.
Perhaps Doc Oc went back in time using his 7XL to prevent himself from being killed? It’d be funny if he actually addressed this on his album.
The original Dr. Octagon was one of Keith’s best selling records to date and was also the debut of the amazing production skills of Dan The Automator. In fact the concept album was supposedly Dan’s personal project and he recruited the skills of Keith and DJ Q-Bert. Dan also released Dr. Instrumentalyst as the instrumental follow up to Dr. Octagonecologyst. It should be noted that Keith played bass on most of the album though.
Supposedly there are 8 issues of comics to be released before the cd as well, any one seen those?
