Yae! Im the first one to discuss EL-P. Well. Today is Feb. 1st ( my birthday ) So, I'd like to give a shout out to myslef.
M-kay. So who likes that We're Famous song he did with Aesop? Good song eh? Dickheads? One might think so upon hearing the song. But dickheads are apealing to me. They are alot more complex than the average nice guy.

El-P is dope but he raps way too much at shows advertised as Aesop concerts.
I give him props for building an underground hip-hop empire from ground up, and fantastic damage is a pretty ill CD, but there's something about him that just doesn't sit right with me.
As for dickheads being more complex I think you might be slippin on that idea. I think dick stems have much more going for them.

He is a good lyricist. I like what he has to say. He has a good video, the one for Stepfather Factory. Okay, well Im going to bed now.

There's no such thing as El Producto rapping ''too much'', because the world needs as much of that man as it can get. The dude's a fucking revolutionary. I'd go as far to say that he has pretty much single-handedly made the indie hip-hop scene as good as it is today, not just by setting up Def Jux, but also through the massive influence style-wise that Company Flow had and still have, and his production technique, which has been copied to great effect so many times.
What other man can boast that he was behind what are arguably the three best hip-hop albums of the decade; Funcrusher Plus, The Cold Vein and Fantastic Damage. I know he only produced the second one, but lets face it, no disrespect to Vast Aire or Vorgul here, but it was El-P's beats that made that album.

EL-P and Company Flow is next on my list to get into. I came across EL-P on the first Handsome Boy Modelling School disc. That particular track sounded to me like the result if Aphex Twin decided to produce hip-hop.
