Underground El-P

I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead captured some of the most chill, paranoid rhymes from El-P, an impressive lyricist from the dark side of Brooklyn. With hard-hitting, rock-inflected productions backing him up, El-P pours out his stream of conscious like, “Why should I be sober when god is so clearly dusted out his mind? / With cherubs puffing a bundle trying remember why he even tried?” If mainstream hip-hop bored you to dead with cash, sex, and coke, here is the underground alternative.
