It’s been awhile since we have heard anything new from the eccentric rapper Kool Keith. Known for his off the wall incomprehensible lyrics and mastery of internal rhymes, the Black Elvis aka the Dr. Octagon has come back again in a brand new collaboration with Halloween Horror Nights’ musical mastermind Figure to give us Entering the Future.
Entering the future starts with us entering outer space with what can only be described as Cortana from Halo giving us a status update as we explore space in the musical spacecraft the duo have put us in. As sirens go off and Figure’s beats start kicking in, Kool Keith begins to describe with lyrical eloquence the Future. In a lot of ways it feels like an homage to 70’s tv shows by how the 21st century was imagined. In his abstract signature style he describes the world similar to what we see, with computerized system, to billions of invested dollars into secret technology in Area 51, to mars being inhabited by real earth life. But out of all craziness included in this song one of my favorite parts of the song is perhaps the song’s cover art, it truly embodies the duo collaboration. Synthesized from the artist minds we get a song that really catapults us into the future.
