Dr. Dooom 2 - Kool Keith and Kutmasta Kurt Interview
row1: One of the first things I noticed about Dr. Dooom 2 is that it does not contain an intro or any skits. What was the reasoning behind not including any?
Keith: Skits are played out, that was a very 1990's and early 2000's thing people got carried away with. I made some of the best skits ever in music, so now I will set a new trend making albums without skits. My songs are so visual they don't need skits really.
Kurt: By the time we got around to talking about doing skits for the album we were both just more ready to wrap the album up, and I agree with Keith that the album is like a giant skit unto its self.
row1: Dr. Dooom 2 has that classic horror movie sound and you got to make a gory music video. Are you personally a big horror fan, or did this just seem a good fit for Dr. Dooom?
Keith: Basically it's the same format as the first Dr. Dooom, but I think this one is more consistent in the sound and imagery. Yeah I'm a big fan of horror flicks. I created the horror-core style years before the Gravediggaz stole my concept, I was doing that style.
row1: Kurt, rumour has it that your working on a new solo album. What sort of sound can we expect? I assume Kool Keith and Motion Man will feature, will there be any new faces or surprises?
Kurt: I'm mostly singing on my new solo album - or The Funky Redneck is singing that is...
row1: Is there currently anyone in the more commercial side of hip-hop (or other) that you would want to collaborate with?
Keith: Lil Wayne is sorta moving into what I did (space rap). I mean they are running out of topics, so even down south rappers have come into a similar style of mine. I want to records with Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy...put them on some of my beats!
row1: Outside of music what are your other interests?
Keith: I'm a connoisseur of porn. But I really focus on and like black asses. Big black booties. The more raw and anal the better, and I like when they keep their clothes on and especially their shoes when they fuck. I hate to see a naked bitch in a movie, it turns me off.
I'm making my own masturbation DVD series soon, keep an eye out for it!
Also I'm a shopaholic. I always look like a million bucks, whether you see me on stage or on the street, I'm gonna be looking fly, like I'm ready to go to a club or have a meeting with Puffy.
Kurt: My hobbies include tending to my crops and training for the Redneck Olympics...my best event is pig wrestling, yeeehhhaaawwww!
row1: What are your plans for Halloween?
Keith: I'm gonna do like Bushwick Bill and rob little kids for their Halloween trick or treat bags!
Kurt: I'm gonna go to a party dressed up as myself!
