An original member of New York’s new-school pioneers the Ultramagnetic MCs, Keith Thornton aka Kool Keith is best known as a solo rapper.

His signature style is stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow and complex vocals, two skills that earn him a perennial nod from the underground hip-hop community.

The average Kool Keith album is peppered with bizarre, disjointed, even delusional or disassociated themes, concepts, and references.

Nearly all of his albums incorporate a satirical dislike for more commercialized strains of hip-hop, as well as major record labels.

The legendary MC who is credited with starting hip hop trends like wearing sports jerseys on stage, will be bringing his unique style to Spiritbar on Saturday, September 15.

Doors open at 10 p.m. and ticket information is available at the Hume Hotel’s front desk.
