3rd studio album from Run The Jewels El-P! Before RTJ had their meteoric rise to stardom, El-P had a hardcore fan base that reached from the back packiest of Hip Hoppers to the cookie cutterist of would be Brooklyn Vegans. Before that he was producing / rapping for one of New York's gulliest Hip Hop groups, Company Flow (shout out Jus and Len). His impressive catalog has never failed to amaze and Cancer 4 The Cure takes what he has always done and amplified it times a thousand. Staying relevant by always doing what it true to him, his beats are outrageous sonic beatdowns that stand strong on their own and the raps give them force fields that even jet fuel can't melt. This album shows the direction he was heading into with the Run The Jewels project. It might be his most terrestrial album since producing Cannibal Ox's Cold Vein, but it also stands worlds apart from what everyone is doing... just the way he's always done.
