You may remember the Providence slam poet-turned-MC getting aggy that De La named their album Art Official Intelligence seemingly after his old live band, but then after some dope, if iconoclastic, conventional boom-bap with his group Non-Prophets, he dovetailed with the Rhymesayers/Anticon too-cool-for-school camp, leading to multiple albums' worth of introspection and rock-verging solipcism.
