    I don't know - I wouldn't think you could be too laid back and write these lyrics. I guess you have to actually hear it to get the full effect though.

    The first thought is "just another wannabe." He seems fake, even though I've never even heard of him. (I could have heard some of his songs, but I certainly don't remember.)

    You can be forgiven for not knowing who he is - he' never had anything close to a radio hit. A little background on him:

    He go started back in the eighties with the Ultramagnetic MCs. They were pretty important in rap, but they pretty much never made it past cult status. Keith disappeared for a while, and the he came back and made the Dr. Octagon album, which was basically lots of non-sequitors piled up on top of weird horror movie-inspired tracks. But it was a pretty entertaining record, and it's sort of a cult classic.

    Keith has done better since then, and he's made some pretty bad albums too. At his best I'd say he's the greatest rapper of all time. He can be a fan manipulator some of the time, with some half-assed projects he does and then pretends he's being innovative. But overall my impression of him is that he's just a guy who likes to make records with lots of weird references and non-sequitors. Whether or not he wants to be a cult figure is hard to tell. He's definitely not a "wannabee" though. If anything, he's found his niche and then gotten stuck in it.

    Also, he may or may not have been treated at Bellvue for major depression...

    i don't really trust the lyrics as a method to figure out one's personality, unless they they have a very personal meaning, not written only formally,
    as it often happens in music industry.

    Personally, i rely more on pictures or videos to observe the gait, the stance, it is essencial in determining one's type

    ISFp, then?

    i sometimes have a hard time watching him because i can't shake the idea that he may very well be seriously mentally ill. my ENTp friend thinks he's totally coherent and totally sane.

    I think he has a certain sense of irony. He's made whole albums where he sort of parodies mainstream rap culture while adding in some of his own personality at the same time, so you don't know if he's being serious or not. Other times, though, he shows extreme paranoia and vitriol against pretty much the whole music industry.
