Dr. Octagon The Return of Dr. Octagon

Dr. Octagon The Return of Dr. Octagon
In the comic-book fantasyland that Kool Keith’s Dr. Octagon inhabits, your alter ego’s death (in 1999) is no obstacle to his return. And let’s be clear about something: before Doom (MF) there was Dooom (Dr.), who is also Keith. As nonsensical and therefore as funny as ever, Dr. Octagon warns us that trees are dying — the choppy beat plays the chainsaw role. Later, and from Goliath’s perspective, he sees humanity for the ant colony it is. When he names one track "A Gorilla Driving A Pick-Up Truck” and in said song the gorilla "runs over reindeer” but checks both ways before changing lanes, you’ll know whether this is for you. Those who expect and enjoy the unorthodox get it, and it’s great Twilight Zone rap. One Watt Son, a three-person Berlin production team you’ve never heard of, crafted the warped out beats. In a good way, it often sounds demented — erupting from the speakers, the manifestation of unresolved inner conflict. With its plodding beats and futuristic space funk, it should be your pleasure to welcome Dr. Octagon back. (Dad Mobile)
