Kutmasta Kurt Presents Kool Keith - Sex Style: The Unreleased Archives Front Cover

Not sure when this is coming out but I’ve always been a fan of Kool Keith and Kutmasta Kurt. This reminds me of some audio Stretch Armstrong posted on his website from a while back where Keith basically took over hosting duties and was buggin’ out the whole time. It was hilarious. Also, he’s performing with the rest of the Ultramagnetic MC’s on October 26th. Be sure to check out our event calendar on the main page for that! Link

In 1997, Kool Keith released the album ‘Sex Style’. The record featured songs that were intended for the Dr. Octogan LP, his first solo effort since the split of Ultramagnetic, but ended up being part of an ‘immediate follow up’ solo record. It was really a chance for Keith (whose has about 10 different personas) to highlight his ‘porn-rap’ he champions as being the originator of. Fast forward, 10 years, and it turns out there’s about another albums worth of tracks that were never released.

The album liner notes include an exhaustive history of the making of this record. Kurt had moved from Santa Cruz (where we both grew up) and found himself living in a 2 bedroom apartment with Keith, TR Love, and members of the group Raw Breed. As far as I know, this was Kurts first experience with ‘housemates’. After spending a weekend at the apartment, I knew it was a matter of time till Kurt wanted to get his own place.
