4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | March 31st 17

It seems that the only Company Flow album anyone mentions is Funchrusher Plus. While that record is a landmark in the underground and a very influential piece of work, it remains peculiar that many don't even know Little Johnny From The Hospitul: Breaks And Instrumentals Vol. 1 exists. It's unfortunate, as this carefully crafted instrumental hip-hop record is almost as good as it's predecessor. El-P handles all of the production, save for some tinkering here or there by Mr. Len, and it's unsurprisingly creative and forward-thinking. The futuristic sounds present on Funcrusher Plus are heard in droves, with synth lines and drum patterns mixing in with organically sampled instrumentation to create something that must've sounded somewhat alien at the turn of the century. Take the one-two punch of "Shadows Drown" and "Worker Ant Uprise" as an example if you're not convinced. It's an underrated work, but if you're a fan of El-P's production skills, this should not and cannot be missed.
