His signature style is stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow and complex vocals, two skills that earn him a perennial nod from the underground hip-hop community. The average Kool Keith album is peppered with bizarre, disjointed, even delusional or disassociated themes, concepts, and references. Nearly all of his albums incorporate a satirical dislike for more commercialized strains of hip-hop, as well as major record labels. He raps under a number of aliases, personas, and characters, including "Dr. Octagon" "Dr. Dooom" "Black Elvis" and a number of others. THE GIFT OF GAB (of Blackalicious) Oakland, CA ************************************ Welcome to the Next Logical Progression. We’ve travelled far with Gift of Gab over the years. When we first heard the venerated Oakland emcee’s voice with Blackalicious, it was a revelation—the opening salvo to nearly two decades of positive emanations, vivid storytelling, elastic rhymes and consistency through reinvention. Across three classic Blackalicious LPs, two praised solo records and 2008′s star-studded collaboration the Mighty Underdogs, not to mention the groundbreaking work of his label Quannum Projects, Gab has been a constant source of innovation and inspiration, giving us as much to mull over as bob our heads to. But lovely as it is, the past is written. The title of Next Logical Progression is no hollow boast: over the lushest beats of his career, Gab blazes a path into the history of hip-hop to come.
