Kool Keith

So normally when post day arrives I go through the ‘ol trusty event/ link/ details bang in a video/photo and whiz bang you’re done. But with this being Keith Thornton (aka Kool Keith) there’s not a great deal of ‘normal’… and that’s the way he likes it!

Back in 2005 and armed with a duty free bag full of porn mags he performed to a mass of heaving sweaty men and a fair chunk of gyrating women at Heat Nightclub (now known simply as Villa). With a hiatus of over seven years from our fair state and at least five releases just under the alias Kool Keith there’s a lot we have yet to witness.

From fronting the Ultra Magnetic MCs and the Bellevue Hospital through to Dr. Octagon, Kool Keith is an American emcee with a British URL the mans an open box of walking contradictions who posses the innate ability to deliver a stream of conscious yet complex vocal raps that ensures he is recognised as a king of the hip-hop underground With the current hip-hop landscape described as bland on occasions, thankfully Kool Keith is as adverse to this as the true hip-hop follower.

Back in Perth for a mid week performance Kool Keith will be sure to pick through the back catalogue, hopefully featuring tracks from the recent Dr. Dooom 2 and The Return of Dr. Octagon throughout to the nineties classics Sex Style, Black Elvis/Lost in Space

Who knows what he’ll bring or what he’ll wear (and have stashed away in his duty-free)… but one things for sure it won’t be boring!
