Kool Keith has announced he’s bringing back the pompadour and shades for Black Elvis 2. The long-awaited sequel album arrives on June 16th via Mello Music Group, but you can preview it now with the title track.
The follow-up to Kool Keith’s 1999 cult classic Black Elvis/Lost in Space features a reunion with Marc Live — who collaborated with the rapper on the production of the original album — as well as guest appearances from Ice-T, Raaddrr Van, Dynamite, L’Orange, J. Stylez, and Agallah. Pre-orders are ongoing.
Produced by L’Orange, “Black Elvis 2 (Intro)” features sinister strings and the non sequitur rhymes that Kool Keith fans have come to expect: “Gigantor express, big like a robot/ I walk ’cause I’m so hot/ Back and forth on any tour/ Watch it with my rain pour/ Make it a like headboard.” Stream it below.
In March, Kool Keith teamed up with Real Bad Man for their album Serpent.
