El-P “The Full Retard”

I call myself a hip hop fan, but somehow I missed a leak from one of the albums I’m most hyped about this year. Last month El-P dropped a single from his upcoming Cancer For Cure album, which is his first release since the “I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead” LP dropped five years ago. “The Full Retard” is El all over, from the first line onwards: “Got a strain un-contained that could turn parade zombie, walk with an army on me, stalked by the harm and armour posse”.
If this first track is anything to go by, then we are all in for a grimey little treat when “Cancer For Cure” comes out. Especially if you remember that Killer Mike, Danny Brown and Mr Muthafuckin eXquire are among the guest emcees. The album is due to be released on 22 May on the Fat Possum label. Stay tuned to the site for more news coming soon.
