We gave it an A

Neither gangsta survivalist nor old-school revivalist, El-P is his own man: an urban-futurist producer and hard-spitting MC with an engorged heart and a high-speed chip on his shoulder. His solo debut amplifies the dystopian side of his former group, Company Flow, with dense, short-circuited beatscapes and raps that are rabid, literate, oblique, paranoid, political, sentimental, and as relentless as prime Public Enemy. Statement of purpose: ”This is for kids worried about the apocalypse.” Count me in.
