For my first post on the blog i decided to upload my favourite album of 2007 (I bought this on release date and it did not leave tray 5 of my CD player for at least 6 months) . now, for those well versed in 'Underground' Hip-Hop this may well be old news but for the uninitiated... pay attention. El-P has garnered most attention as the head of (arguably) Hip-Hop's most popular Indie Record Label since the year 2000... Definitive Jux. As well as making some impressive business moves with Def Jux (pretty much locking down some of the underground scene's most influential acts) the man sure knows how to knock out a mean release. Enough bigging the guy up. Download this, listen to the first track (who knew Rap could be this epic?) and try justifing deleting it afterwards. This guy understands where Hip-Hop has been and is launching it into the future... all be it, a dystopian one.
Feat; Aesop Rock, Trent Reznor, Cage, Cat Power and The Mars Volta
