Dr. Dooom; First Come, First Served
First Come, First Served
is the third studio album by
American emcee Keith Thornton, better known as Kool Keith.
Released in 1999, it is his first release under the alias Dr. Dooom.
The album's concept involves a serial killer named Dr. Dooom,
who has a fondness for "cannibalism, pet rats, and Flintstones vitamins".
The album opens with Dr. Dooom murdering Dr. Octagon.
According to Steve Huey,
this "[signals] Keith's desire to move away
from the alternative Hip Hop audience who embraced
that album and back to his roots in street-level Hip Hop".
The lyrical content is darker and more violent than that of Dr. Octagonecologyst.
Huey states that the album's lyrics are "way too far out to fulfill Keith's aspirations; he simply doesn't fit into Hip Hop's obsession with realism."
The album's cover is a parody of those designed by
No Limit Records most notably Silkk the Shockers Charge It 2 Da Game
