KMD ("Kausing Much Damage", or "A Positive Kause in a Much Damaged Society") was a hip hop trio in the early 1990s, best known for launching the career of acclaimed rapper and producer MF DOOM, who at the time was known as Zev Love X. Other members of the group were Zev Love X's younger brother DJ Subroc and Rodan, who at the time chose to finish high school, so Zev Love X and DJ Subroc brought in rapper Onyx the Birthstone Kid to replace him.


After guest-starring on 3rd Bass' song "The Gas Face," the trio released its acclaimed and overlooked, full-length debut, "Mr. Hood". Its political outlook was similar to the group Brand Nubian, which made a guest appearance on the album; however, the style was more comical and included a great deal of clips from old children's recordings, mostly notably a sample of the "Sesame Street" character Bert on the single "Humrush."

The group, minus Onyx, later recorded a controversial album titled "Black Bastards" in 1994. The album was shelved for years because of its controversial cover, which depicts a Sambo caricature being hanged in a game of hangman. After Subroc's unexpected death from being hit by a car during the production of "Black Bastards", Zev vanished from the music scene and reappeared as MF DOOM.
