El-P – “The Full Retard” | New Music

Highly respected underground staple El-P finally drops the first single from his anticipated Cancer for Cure album, the gritty, headnod-inducing, refreshingly dope “The Full Retard.” Political correctness be damned. Pump this shit after the jump.

Listen To: El-P – “The Full Retard”

Cancer For Cure takes another huge leap forward from the production work of his 2010 instrumental album weareallgoingtoburninhellmeggamixxx with a bombastic collision of synths, bottomless bass tones, live instrumentation, ear-worming melody, and tightly coiled drum patterns, setting the standard for hip hop production higher than ever. The obvious diversion from the previous album is the presence of El-P’s ever-developing vocal style, continuing to raise the bar on his already highly verbose flow that swiftly and muscularly navigates a rapidfire explosion of syllabic conundrums and quick-witted elocutions full of heart, purpose, style and grit. Rounded out by feature appearances by a host of high profile guests including Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Paul Banks (Interpol), and more this will easily be one of the year’s most talked about albums.

Cancer for Cure drops May 22.
