Time Out says

Ever since he started rapping in the ‘80s, Bronx MC Kool Keith has been known by many names, including Dr. Octagon and Dr. Dooom. With the exception of a single major-label release (1999's Black Elvis/Lost in Space) Keith has remained independent as a hip-hop artist, harnessing his eccentric flow with the help of producers such as Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert. Continuing a holiday tradition, Kool Keith headlines a December performance in Chicago, this year moving from Logan Arcade to the larger stage at the Empty Bottle.
