Product Description

KMD (Kausing Much Damage, or a positive Kause in a Much Damaged society) was a Hip Hop group in the early 90s perhaps best known for launching the career of acclaimed MC/Producer MF Doom (known during his KMD tenure as Zev Love X). After guesting on 3rd Bass' The Gas Face, the trio (Zev, brother Subroc, and Onyx) released the acclaimed and overlooked Mr. Hood full-length. Their political outlook was similar to the group Brand Nubian, who guested on Hood; however, the style was more comical and included a great deal of clips from old children's recordings, mostly notably a sample of the Seaseme Street character Bert on the single Who Me? This is the official Elektra Records/Traffic Entertainment Group re-release with original artwork and track listing in it's entirety. Cutting edge, ahead of it's time production and skits from KMD and Stimulated Dummies (John Gamble and Mr. Dante Ross). Features the singles Peachfuzz , Who Me? and Nitty Gritty (feat. Brand Nubian). This is one Rap album that is not to be missed. Tracks : Mr. Hood At Piocalles Jewelry/Crackpot, Who Me? (With An Answer From Dr. Bert), Boogie Man, Mr. Hood Meets Onyx, Subroc's Mission, Humrush, Figure Of Speech, Bananapeel Blues, Nitty Gritty (feat. Brand Nubian), Trial 'N Error, Hard Wit No Hoe, Mr. Hood Gets A Haircut, 808 Man, Boy Who Cried Wolf, Peachfuzz.

MF Doom Back In 1991 (4.5 Stars) 6 Nov. 2006
By Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For many new MF Doom fans, it's real hard to believe that he rhymed under the name Zev Love X, in a group called K.M.D. that also consisted of his brother DJ Subroc, and Onyx The Birthstone Kid (aka Rodan). In 1991, they dropped their first album Mr. Hood, with the single "Peachfuzz" which became a well known hit. The album itself is mostly based on a fictional character named Mr. Hood, who's voice is pasted together by instructional tapes (or so I heard). Some of the skits that feature Mr. Hood are quite entertaining, such as "Mr. Hood Meets Onyx", and "Mr. Hood Gets A Haircut".

Production wise is unique and creative. The sampling is also what makes this album great. Most of the samples are from televison shows such as Seseme Street for songs like "Humrush" and "Who Me?". The latter song would have a music video as a paroody of Seaseme Street. Lyrically, this trio had a lot. Zev Love X would take control of most of the vocals, and show off in songs like "Peachfuzz" and "Figure Of Speech". He would also imitate a preacher inside of a church in the track "Preacher Porkchop", and somehow Mr. Hood attends. The other two members would show off their skills on a few solo cuts also. Subroc would do his thing in "Subroc's Mission", and Onyx would handle the track "Boogie Man". There are not many guest appearances on this album. Only the group Brand Nubian would join for the song "Nitty Gritty" which works out well.

Overall, a great album by this trio, that became a big hit back in '91. This is one album that you will enjoy again, if you like creativity. I recommend this if you want to hear MF Doom back in his younger years, or if you enjoyed early 90's rap. Unfortunately Electra Records let this one go out of print, and didn't think to ever reissue it, up until a couple of months ago with the help of Traffic Ent (thank you very much for doing that!!). So at this price, I recommend that you snatch this one up as soon as possible. Unfortunately this group would face major setbacks when it came to their next album "Bl_ck B_st_rds"... (hey that might get reissued also [crosses fingers]).

Chandler Infamous, and I'm out. Peace!

P.S.- Kool G.Rap & DJ Polo's "Rags To Riches", Lord Finesse's "The Awaking", and The Genius/GZA's "Words From The Genius" were also reissued recently on Traffic Ent. Snatch those up also!

Mr. Hood 3 Feb. 2005
By Ludacris88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Classic material...too bad its out of print, but you can get it for free at emusic.com (as other reviewers have said), and yes it really does work, and it's legal, you just have to enter your credit card #. Anyway, KMD was an early 90s group made up of Zevlove X (aka MF Doom aka Viktor Vaughn), Onyx The Birthstone Kid & DJ Subroc. Also check out 'Black Bastards', which is also on emusic, or just buy 'Best Of KMD' which pretty much has the best songs on 'Mr. Hood' & 'Black Bastards' and 2 unreleased tracks ("Nitty Gritty" Remix with Brand Nubian and Busta Rhymes & "Popcorn".

1.Mr. Hood At Piocalles Jewelry/Crackpot-5/5-Introduces Mr. Hood, who's a character made up of parts of a language-instruction tapes, who ends up making the album pretty funny. Zevlove's "Crackpot" verse is great too.
2.Who Me?-5/5-Great song, this was back when Doom had an incredible flow (still is a very good lyricist tho)
3.Boogie Man!-5/5-Great Onyx solo song, too bad he didn't at least become a weird masked rapper...
4.Mr. Hood Meets Onyx-Funny skit ("excuse me, your shirt is dirty", "what size are your slippers? they are too small")
5.Subrocs Mission-5/5-Yea, Subroc can rap too
6.Humrush-5/5-All 3 drop nice verses, over a very well done beat...and Sesame Street samples
7.Figure Of Speech-5/5-Great Zevlove X solo song, one of his best tracks lyrically
8.Bananapeel Blues-3/5-"A lot of brothers don't like this joint
Cause it might not be funk or funky"-Yea, and maybe also because its talking instead of rapping, so its kinda boring
9.Nitty Gritty Featuring Brand Nubian-5/5-Probably the best song on the CD, featuring a verse from every member of KMD and Brand Nubian, and the best production on the CD
10.Trial And Error-5/5-If 'Nitty Gritty' isnt the best song on the CD...then this definately is, more great production
11.Hard Wit No Hoe-5/5-Kind of weird storytelling from Zevlove X, but more hot production and Zev is still shining as the group's best MC
12.Mr. Hood Gets A Haircut-Another funny Mr. Hood skit
13.808 Man-5/5-More nice production and storytelling, basically every track on this CD is classic material
14.Boy Who Cried Wolf-5/5-Zevlove X is at the top of his game on this track
15.Peachfuzz-5/5-The only single on the CD, and also one of the best tracks. Some of the best production on the CD, and Onyx drops what is probably his best verse on the CD
16.Preacher Porkchop-Not really a song, more like a skit
17.Soulflexin'-5/5-The flow on this track is nice over a great loop
18.Gasface Refill (Bonus Track)-5/5-Great sequel to 3rd Bass' 'Gasface' which feaured Zevlove X, not as good as the original in my opinion (which was a classic song) but still a hot song

Highly reccomended, find a way to get this album, you won't be dissapointed.

The essence of raw hip hop at it's finest 22 Jun. 2004
By Carlos G. Puentes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
M.C. Serch let Zev Love X shine on the "Gas Face", and that one verse was all I needed to hear to go cop the album. Actually, I bought the tape, and I'm kicking myself, now that I see how much the CD will cost me. These youngsters didn't get the commercial success they deserved, but this was definately a ground breaking freshman effort.Their clever lyrics and infusion of comedy over racist samples, was as innovative as it gets. Even at a time when Rap was actually saying something,I.E. Chuck,KRS, De La, these kids really struck a chord with a true head, like myself. When I hear the garbage that's scanning platinum these days,I realize just how unimportant talent is, when it comes to sales.
I guess the promotion machine really likes basic and simple. Just ask J-quon and Nelly. R.I.P. DJ Subrock

If the price is out of your budjet, I recommend "The Best Of KMD" which would have most of the tracks from this and their sophomre album. Unfortunately this group would face major setbacks when it came to their next album Black Bastards...

classic from a classic group 2 April 2005
By Kd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the start of the excellent group KMD. They had nice beats and heavy flows that were above many other rappers in 91. This was far ahead of a lot of others too. Their style is fun and witty and nice to chill and listen to at any time of the day. If you haven't got this I would say get it quick even though its likely you will find a second hand one and will have to pay a bit for it. Its definately worth it because you can't miss out on classic albums like this and not know who they were. I would also recommend getting Black b_s#a@ds too because that is like having a collection of diamonds in your room, in a way of representing hip hop of the era when it was more true and fun than it will ever be now. KMD is a TRUE HIP HOP group and both their albums are perfect and what you need if you don't know about real hip hop. Just check what these mans are saying in here, and theres many more that know what the deal is. GET IT! Peace!
