EDIT: Deltron 3030 technically came out in 2000, but i think the trends i talk about bleed a bit into the early 2000s too. i think The Cold Vein is probably where it starts to die out personally.

There’s quite a few moments where Kieth has to verbally sprint to insert his wordy verses ... read more


Before Jpegmafia, and Injury Reserve, and even MF Doom was a man that pushed boundaries in Hip Hop for years and still to this day doesn't get the recognition and love he deserves, that man is Kool Keith and he is a certified legend. If you want bars full of medical terminology out the wazoo then Dr. Octagon's Dr. Octagonecologyst will be right up your alley.
