New Kingdom is known for their bizarre, freeform-sounding lyrics which are often {{Mind Screw}}y or [[IndecipherableLyrics slurred as fuck]], and a sound that, as explained above, [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly mixes]] {{Funk}}, Soul, [[RapRock Rap, Rock]] and [[EverybodyMustGetStoned Psychedelia]], sounding like a [[Music/GeorgeClinton early Funkadelic]] crossed with ''Bitches Brew''-era Music/MilesDavis, ''TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' and a rapper doing an imitation of Music/CaptainBeefheart. The vocals are not so much rapping as it is shouting spoken poetry over Psychedelic Fusion.

New Kingdom was a AlternativeHipHop group formed in 1987 by a couple of music geeks from New York, Sebastian, a former {{Hardcore Punk}}er, and Nosaj, a devotee of Soul artists like Curtis Mayfield. Despite only making two albums, this [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove underappreciated band]] is the missing link between PsychedelicRock and HipHop, and are considered by their fans to be pioneers in a trippy, acidy psychedelic fusion of [[RapRock rap and rock]] that has oozed over into other genres and artists in the UndergroundHipHop scene.
