Producer: KMD
Album: Mr. Hood
Label: Elektra Records


Before MF Doom donned the mask, he was known as Zev Love X. Along with his younger brother Subroc and Onyx the Birthstone Kid, they made up the group KMD. After appearing on 3rd Bass's "The Gas Face," they were signed to Elektra Records, where they dropped their debut LP, Mr. Hood, in 1991. Their second album, Black Bastards, proved too controversial for Elektra, and on the heels of Subroc being killed while crossing the Long Island Expressway, the tragically slept-on group was subsequently dropped.
