Biografia

Dr. Octagon was a fictional character created by American rapper Keith Thornton, better known as Kool Keith. First appearing on Thornton’s 1996 debut solo album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, Dr. Octagon is an extraterrestrial time traveling gynecologist and surgeon from the planet Jupiter. Thornton performed and released three albums under the alias. The character was murdered by Dr. Dooom on Thornton’s 1999 album First Come, First Served, and was briefly revived before once again being killed on Thornton’s 2008 album Dr. Dooom 2, in response to the release of The Return of Dr. Octagon, an album largely produced without Thornton’s involvement.

Following the release of the Ultramagnetic MCs’ third album The Four Horsemen (1993), member Keith “Kool Keith” Thornton produced two songs under the alias Dr. Octagon: “Dr. Octagon” and “Technical Difficulties”.Thornton mailed the songs to radio stations as well as giving copies to several DJs and record producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura. This led to Nakamura’s role in producing the album.


DJ Qbert made fundamental contributions to the album’s production with his innovative scratching.
Dr. Octagonecologyst has been praised for its original sound, which has often been attributed to Nakamura. However, Thornton states that he was largely involved with the production of the album.Thornton is quoted as saying “Automator and Kurt are probably receiving more credit than I did, but I was a big musical person behind Octagon.” Nakamura has said he wanted Dr. Octagonecologyst to stand out from other hip hop albums, citing the music of Eric B. & Rakim, Mantronix, and Run-D.M.C.
