Hip hop pioneer Kool Keith is today’s guest on the Culture Creature podcast. Listen to the Kool Keith interview above or in your podcast provider of choice.

Keith helped lay the foundations of hip hop as a member of Ultramagnetic MCs. In the mid-nineties, Keith formed Dr. Octagon along with Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert; their eccentric and innovative debut album was an instant classic. Keith continued to reinvent himself with scores of projects and albums including Dr. Dooom, Diesel Truckers (both of which were collaborations with Kutmasta Kurt), Analog Brothers, 2016’s collabs album Feature Magnetic, and many more. Today on the podcast, Keith and Dan Redding discuss writing rhymes on theme, grocery shopping tips, how to dress in Miami, and more. Listen now. This interview has been edited for length.
