Dr. Dooom 2 is the eleventh studio album by Keith Thornton, better known as Kool Keith. Released in 2008, it is his second release as "Dr. Dooom", following First Come, First Served.[5]

Lyrical themes[edit]

"Simon" refers to American Idol host Simon Cowell.[6] According to Thornton, "I think for one guy to sit up and judge people and for him to be British at that—who the fuck is he to judge people? [...] What is Simon's qualifications?"[6] "R.I.P. Dr. Octagon" was written in response to The Return of Dr. Octagon. According to KutMasta Kurt, "Without that album, we wouldn't have made this album. There would have been no need for Dr. Dooom to come back."[6] "Step-N-Fetchers" focuses on African American entertainers who encourage and promote negative stereotypes.[6] "Always Talkin' Out Your Ass" focuses on the music industry. Thornton states that "That song is about a lot of things: how people tend to do things expensive and then they do things cheap at the same time, so they have a contradicted lifestyle".[6]
