The 50 Best Albums of 2012 (So Far)

4. El-P, Cancer For Cure

Label: Fat Possum Records
Released: May 22th

Fear and loathing. And paranoia and anxiety. In Brooklyn. Yes, the world offered by El-P, the rapper/producer of Company Flow and later Def Jux fame, on his latest solo LP, C4C, is a decidedly dark and manic one. And exquisitely captured, too. Imagine watching Orwell's 1984, directed by Oliver Stone circa 1992, set to the music of Hank Shockley in 1988. While your eyelids have been clipped open on some A Clockwork Orange shit. And then imagine becoming addicted to it.
