Description

Dr. Octagon has remained the most celebrated, mythical alias of rap innovator Kool Keith, despite his objections to the attention it's garnered over his other work, as well as his multiple attempts to kill off the character. Since the release of the project's classic 1996 debut, two illegitimate follow-ups have appeared. 2004's Dr. Octagon, Pt. II was a straight-up bootleg, and 2006's The Return of Dr. Octagon, based on abandoned sessions from a proposed Resurrection of Dr. Octagon, was largely produced without Keith's involvement, and shouldn't be considered canonical. The Dr. Octagon persona surprisingly resurfaced on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' 2013 album Mosquito, and Keith continued performing songs from Dr. Octagonecologyst during his concerts. In 2017, Keith reunited with the Automator and DJ Q-Bert, the co-architects of the original album, for a string of live dates as Dr. Octagon, and the trio released the project's first true sequel in 2018.
