Dr. Octagon

Dr. Octagon


Dr. Octagon is a time-traveling Jupiter native from the year 3000 who is incompetent in his medical fields as a gynecologist and surgeon.

It’s important to know that the Dr. Octagon character is formed by three people—DJs Dan The Automator and DJ Q-Bert, and MC Kool Keith—not Keith alone.

Dr. Octagon released in 1996 as the short version of Dr. Octagonecoloygst, which released a year later with a varied tracklist. There is also a 1996 instrumental-version of the album.

The Dr. Octagon character was later killed off by Keith’s character, Dr. Dooom, on the latter’s 1999 First Come, First Served.

Due to a loss of creative control over recorded Dr. Octagon material, the character was blasphemously resurrected on The Return of Dr. Octagon—Keith was disheartened at the tainting of Dr. Octagon’s legacy. The label chose to put it out without Keith’s, The Automator’s, or DJ Q-Bert’s input. Keith responded to this atrocity in 2008 with Dr. Dooom’s Dr. Dooom 2, in which Dooom details how he killed Octagon (“R.I.P. Dr. Octagon”), setting the record straight for his fans and spelling out “fuck you” to the abusive label.

The Dr. Octagonecologyst trio returned 22 years later in 2018 with Moosebumps: An Exploration Into Modern Day Horripilation. Moosebumps is the real, and final, follow-up to Dr. Octagonecologyst.
