With the support courtesy of Dr. Octagon (a.k.a. Dr. Doom, a.k.a. Kool Keith), Sir Menelik released the singles "Physical Jewels"/ "Nightwork," "Space Cadillac"/"Nightwork," and the full-length Macroscope all in 1997. Three years later Menelik took on the name Scaramanga and released the album Special EFX.
