"Black Bastards" (or "Bl_ck B_st_rds") is an album by KMD, released in 2001 through Sub Verse Records. Initially, the album was scheduled for release in 1994, 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. [ [ allmusic ((( K.M.D. > Biography ))) ] ] However the album displays no obvious 5% Nation rhetoric yet the project was racially candid, as demonstrated by the album title, cover 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.
