One-off collabo between our Bro Keith and notorious NYC MC Godfather Don recorded immediately after Keith's departure from the Ultramagnetic MCs and his alleged stint at Bellevue. The Cenobites is a pretty loose freestyle affair, originally released as an EP on Fondle 'Em Records (I know, right?!) in 1993 but then expanded to a full-length LP and re-released in '95. This was before Dr. Octagon or Dr. Dooom ever existed, before Sex Style or any of that stuff. Just a couple B-Boys throwin down ill rhymes over dope beats, although Keith's off-kilter genius is evident throughout. Dude is a freak of nature, throwin' cows at your fake forces.
I take issue with the Morrissey comparison, otherwise this is pretty accurate (thanks Peter).

PS: Was anyone else aware that Kool Keith has released no less than 36 albums since the mid-90's? This is knowledge I've gleaned only recently, and I've been hard at work plundering his back catalogue for buried gems (such as the amazingly-covered Thug or What?, shown below). I have come to the realization that while Keith has a major problem with self-editing, even his most obscure releases are full of gold and weirdness. You can get a large portion of his discography HERE, but if anyone is curious I could upload several more rarities. Let me know if there is any interest in such an endeavor...
