DJ Subroc (1973–1993) was an English born American hip hop artist and a member of KMD, Constipated Monkey, and Monsta Island Czars. His first group, KMD was formed by him along with his brother Zev Love X (MF DOOM) and Jade 1, who would later be known as Rodan, but who was eventually replaced by Onyx the Birthstone Kid. His first release was the LP Mr. Hood, on Elektra Records, in 1991. Although production is either credited to KMD or to Stimulated Dummies, he produced everything under the name KMD, due to the fact that he was underage at the release of the album. After further production for artists like 3rd Bass, MF Grimm, Megalon (aka Tommy Gunn, Kurious Jorge, & Zev Love X, who would later be known as MF DOOM), DJ SubRoc died in 1993 after being hit by a car while attempting to cross the Long Island Expressway. His death brought production of the KMD album Black Bastards to a halt and marked the end of KMD, although Black Bastards was later released. A few of what people believe to be MF DOOM productions are actually those of the late, DJ Subroc, instrumentals like "Peach Extract", "Hands Of Doom", "Rainblood" (Pt.1 & 2), "Hoe Cakes"[citation needed], and, "Scientific Civilization". The track "Leave Ya with This" from the album A Constipated Monkey, by Kurious, is dedicated to DJ Subroc.
