El-P is back with his first album since 2007’s I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead. It’s called Cancer for Cure and it’s out May 22. The 12-track effort features Interpol’s Paul Banks, Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, Despot, Nick Diamonds of Islands and recent R.A.P. Music collaborator Killer Mike.
If you dug “The Full Retard,” “Stay Down” and “Tougher Colder Killer” at all, you’re going to love the thick, apocalyptic backdrops El’s put on Cure. Not to mention his skills on the mic haven’t dulled in the least. If anything he sounds like he’s got higher aspirations. Go listen to Cancer for Cure over at Rolling Stone. [FACT]
