El-P is a trailblazer in the hip hop underground.
Fantastic Damage picks up where Company Flow left off - slamming jagged boom baps into computer crash squeals, like the score for a Blade Runner sequel set in Brooklyn.
Fantastic Damage is unquestionably the rap album of the year
Throughout the record, El-P proves he's one of the most technically gifted MCs of his time, spitting out near-impossible phrases and rhythmic variations that simply leave the listener's head spinning....Fantastic Damage constitutes some of the most challenging, lyrically dense hip-hop around, assembled by one of the genre's true independent mavericks.
