As we reported last August, El-P signed with Fat Possum to release his next album, which was then tentatively titled Cancer For Cure. Well, he’s officially gone with that name for the project that’s set to drop May 22(!!). In addition to making this announcement, the Brooklyn rapper-producer has revealed that he’s got some big guests on the album, including Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, and Interpol’s Paul Banks.
As if that wasn’t enough, El Producto also shared the first single, “The Full Retard,” that’s just as menacing and future-NYC-boom-bap as you might hope. As the sample says, “You should pump this shit, like they do in the future.” Stream “The Full Retard” below.
