Legendary New York emcee Kool Keith adds another chapter to his long career (Ultramagnetic MC, Rhythm X, Dr. Octagon, Big Willie Smith, Sinister 6000, Tashan Dorrsett), releasing a full-length collaboration with long-time Memphis producer Mr. Sche. This album recalls Keith's successful transplant to the West Coast in the mid-1990s, when he recorded the classic Sex Style album and name-checked Bay Area rising star E-40, among others, deviating sharply from the firm "East Coast" tradition he was instrumental in defining as a member of the Ultramagnetic MCs. This time Keith shares the spotlight with Mr. Sche, better known for work with "Down South" artists such as 8Ball, Al Kapone, and Immortal Lowlife. The pairing works, with Keith's leftfield references (tank tops, Samsung Galaxy phones, space travel, robots, invertebrates, Jesse Helms & Star Wars), meshing well with Sche's synth-infused, soulful, southern beats.
