And he’s back! Five years after his last solo album, ‘I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead’, on the now defunct Def Jux label, El-P is all set to release not one, but two records this year. Besides handling production duties on Killer Mike’s ‘R.A.P. Music’ coming out later this year, the barrage of electronic chaos from Brooklyn will also be heard on the previously announced solo-album ‘Cancer for Cure’ as well. Features include Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire and Interpol singer and guitarist Paul Banks. I could include a lot more factoids or try my hand at describing this first leak from the album but I’d rather just stick to the repeated mantra from the massive banger itself; “You should pump this shit like they do in the future!”


1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
