Black Bastards (or Bl_ck B_st_rds) is an album by KMD (featuring Zev Lov X, an early alias of MF DOOM), released in 2001 through ReadyRock.
Initially, the album was scheduled for release in 1993, but Elektra Records canceled the album, reportedly due to the controversial cover art, which shows a Sambo figure being lynched, and its black nationalist, Five-Percenter lyrics. However, the album displayed no obvious Five-Percenter rhetoric, yet the project was racially candid, as demonstrated by the album title, its cover art, and the sample collage intro. Zev Love X’s brother DJ Subroc was killed when he was struck by a car shortly before the album was completed.
Rare and demo tracks recorded during the making of this album were released on a vinyl-only EP titled Black Bastards Ruffs + Rares in 1998.
The album was re-released in 2001 by Sub Verse Music and again in 2008 by MF Doom’s own Metal Face Records.
