Product Details


2012 album from the independent Rap icon. Cancer For Cure marks his first full length rap album since 2007's critically acclaimed I'll Sleep When Your Dead. The album takes another huge leap forward from the production work of his 2010 instrumental album. Weareallgoingtoburninhellmeggamixxx with a bombastic collision of synths, bottomless bass tones, live instrumentation, ear-worming melody, and tightly coiled drum patterns, setting the standard for hip hop production higher than ever. The obvious diversion from the previous album is the presence of EL-P's ever-developing vocal style, continuing to raise the bar on his already highly verbose flow that swiftly and muscularly navigates a rapid fire explosion of syllabic conundrums and quick-witted elocutions full of heart, purpose, style, and grit. Rounded out by feature appearances by a host of high profile guests including Killer Mike, Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, Paul Banks, and more this will easily be one of the year's most talked about albums.

Comment: One of few who get 5 stars out of 5! This album is brooklyn bull at it's finest. EL-P got back to it on this album. Fresh/dope/mean/gutter. What's not to like? RIP DEF JUX (sad).

Comment: I didn't really like this. Being a fan of Fantastic Damage and Company Flow, I was expecting more than just alright. It's too fast. Very tiring and too much of that kill the robots sound in it. Also I'm disappointed that he hasn't made a full LP with Despot.

Comment: 4.5 stars all the way for this later to be seen as a classic, innovative eclectic piece of work from El Producto. I love the fresh sounds he utilises so well and his never sell out attitude to the co-operate whims of the shitty commercialised pop sound which is saturating this great art form. Much respect to El for keepin it raw as ever since the Company Flow days!!!!

Comment: el has done it again, articulating that which is intangible and pushing his musical limits, which seem to be nil. somehow between his quasar imploding beats he is still able to breakdown humanity in a style which is HIS OWN. don't even bother to comment if you intend to diss this album, you will expose your own ignorance as a fan of hip hop.

Comment: another true, classic album from da god El Producto. he was always one of my favorite emcees and producers for over a decade but I had lost some enthusiasm over the past few as the Jux faded out... however the kidd is back like cooked crack owning shit right now. R.A.P. Music is a perfect, concise hip hop album that anyone can feel; C4C also brings that concise feel; while to me his other 2 solo albums are 5 star classics, they were more sprawlingly epic leading you to not rock 'em all the time, but C4C is mad clean, razor honed detail, no filler, I can rock it most any time, and will for quite some time i'm sure. a must-cop for sheezy

Comment: i'm back,just to write that I did what I wrote that I would have done in my review.i mean that I bought "Fantastic Damege" and "I'll Sleep When You're Dead",other two bombs,people and very good music,productions and rap to feel good,intense and,pure lyricism and high vocabolary level,like he allways did.i appreciated "I'll Sleep When You're Dead" a lot,becouse,even if the flow is the same on many tracks,i understood that it was a your chois,becouse you already made crazy thing with crearives flows and tecniques on the past and you back to do it on "Cancer 4 Cure",so "I'll Sleep When You're Dead" still a big album in that way a different way.if "Cancer 4 Cure",would be like that album,i would be disapointed,but you did that original project,then you are back to put different flows and original tecniques,when many rappers,never back to do it,but you are real!!!BIG El-Producto.keep like that.

Comment: Nobody is ever satisfied about anything these days. If those hip hop classics you claim to be the great were released now and days yall wouldn't give praise as you did back then. The problem in hip hop is the FANS thinking their fuckin' critics.

Comment: The first El-p affiliated project I won't be picking up - and I've picked them all up on day one since Funcrusher. Lazy beats, lame hooks & terrible affiliations with rappers. How do you go from talented guys like Aesop and Lif to utter trash like Killer Mike and Mr. Exquire (or whoever)? Thanks El, we had a good run from my teens into my mid 30's... guess it can't last forever, right? Peace.

Comment: @ von. I just read my statement again and it makes complete sense. w/e, this album is for the facebook goon troop that picked up on his shit through adult swim bumps. there's nothing futuristic about techno anymore, it's an old form of music. this album isn't over anyone's head, we get it. it's just shiny and overproduced. him rhyming over beats from weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3 would've at least been twice as good as this album right here. and yes jordan, agreed: the emcees he's got making cameos now are hard to get used to.

Comment: Im not sure if I like the instrumentals on this project. Lyrics on point like always...but I feel like el-ps chemistry is more compatible with the abstract hiphop beats n intrumentals like on "Fantastic Damage" - "Funcrusher Plus" and his earlier works. These beats give the album an almost - and I hate to say it - mainstream sound lol. And the some of the guest emcees sound like Lil Wayne immitators...yuck! Production makes up for all that hence the 4 stars.

Comment: @ DMV.......... that statement makes no sense, The only song that sounds remotely close to The Prodigy is the first 2 minutes of Request Denied before the guitar starts, and there is no Dubstep on this at all so I dont know where you pulled Skrillex name from.... If you dont like summin then just say that, nothing wrong with opinions but just comparing it to things that sound nothing like it is corny....
