Kool Keith: Misogynist Rapper, Elvis Impersonator … Treehugger?

Kool Keith — the Bronx rapper whose various alteregos (Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis et al) have delivered some of the best “underground” rap this side of the 6 train, not to mention some of the dirtiest (“Spankmaster”) — raps about … environmental conservation on “Trees” off his latest record, The Return of Dr. Octagon:

“Trees are dieing … carbon dioxide coming out to you … Watch your atmosphere, pesticides”

Al Gore’s influence, it seems, runs pimp-deep.
