El-P, currently leading a resurgence in indie-rap, has been keeping very busy indeed.
As well as pulling together his Cancer4Cure LP, the Def Jux head honcho has also been flexing his production muscles for Atlanta rap hero Killer Mike. R.A.P Music features 12 El-P produced bangers, all laid over with Killer Mike’s beguiling flow.
Spin are currently hosting a full stream of the album; flavours range from futureshocked electro through to the Hotel California-echoing ‘Anywhere But Here’. And is that a Lethal Bizzle nod we detect on ‘Big Beast’? Let’s hope so. Click here to listen.
R.A.P Music is due on May 15 through Williams Street Records.
