Octagonecologyst is the debut solo studio album by American rapper and Ultramagnetic MCs member Kool Keith, who released the album under the alias Dr. Octagon. A shorter version of the album, titled Dr. Octagon, was released on May 7, 1996, on Bulk Recordings in the United States and Mo' Wax in the United Kingdom. The full album was later released by DreamWorks Records in 1997 under the title Dr. Octagonecologyst

Octagon was released on Bulk Recordings in the United States and Mo' Wax in the United Kingdom, while the full-version was released on DreamWorks Records. The two versions also have varying tracklists-tracks were removed from and added to the final version. It’s hard to exaggerate the role that Kool Keith’s debut solo album as Dr. Octagon played in revitalizing underground hip-hop. It certainly didn’t bring the scene back to life single-handedly, but it attracted more attention than any non-mainstream rap album in quite a while, thanks to its inventive production and Keith’s bizarre,.

The positive reception for Dr. Octagon caught the attention of Dan Nakamura, aka Dan the Automator. Keith and Automator wound up doing a couple albums’ worth of collaborations in ’95 and 1996-a host of their bicoastal boom-bap joints can be heard on the after-the-fact collection A (Much) Better Tomorrow -but it’s Dr. Octagonecologyst that really shook people up. Hip-hop could be weird, but how.

I want to see an original copy with velvet labels. I don't think they exist...

The 75 Ark reissue is JUNK. It's a noisy pressing with no sonic detail or dynamics. Even the "Respect The Classics" reissue beats it and that series is usually garbage.
