There’s a big difference between the vulgarity of Kool Keith and the vulgarity of, say, Three 6 Mafia. The first song on the upcoming Three 6 album contains a hook that goes “I Long dick her like uh! uh! uh!” Needless to say, last week’s listening session was more than a little awkward.
Kool Keith on the other hand is more subtly perverse. His sex anthems are usually childish and bizarre. Take this excerpt from Urb’s profile of Keith:
“The first time I went to a strip club, I had just come off tour. It was a club down south. I had a thousand singles and it was a slow night. I kept putting $10 in girls’ [g-strings] every five seconds. They kept asking me, ‘Do you want a dance?’ I said, ‘No, I don’t want a dance.’
“And it was buggin’ them out because it was kind of twisted. They were used to the regulars giving $10 total. They were more into me because the way I was doing it was weird. Sometimes, I had them all around me at the same time. I was like, ‘Here’s $10 because I like your outfit. It looks good.’ They’re like, ‘But do you want me to dance?’ I said, ‘Nah, don’t dance.’ I just got a kick out of it. It was just something done tactically; abnormal to their whole program. They said, ‘We never had a guy come in here and do that type of stuff. This is weird.’
Somewhere beneath the toilet humor and fetishes, there’s a childlike innocence to Kool Keith.
