El-P, our resident rap doomsayer, warned us that every little thing was going to shit lengthy earlier than it obtained there. As a solo artist, a producer, a member of the rap teams Firm Movement and now Run the Jewels, and the previous head of the venerable hip-hop label Def Jux, El-P, born Jaime Meline, constructed a sturdy catalogue of paranoid boom-bap bangers that proceed to really feel prescient years after the actual fact. 2002’s Incredible Harm, devoted to “children anxious in regards to the apocalypse,” is a doc of struggle, homicide, and concrete decay written earlier than 9/11 however launched right into a world profoundly modified by it. “Deep House 9mm” worries that America will exit like historic Rome, and “Useless Disnee” ponders looking for refuge in Disney World as American cities burn, a number of years earlier than the Mouse descended on Instances Sq.. 2007’s I’ll Sleep When You’re Useless is leaner and extra effectively rounded, although no much less grim. At a time when Brooklyn-based indie music was a Day-Glo dance-punk celebration, I’ll Sleep spoke to a technology “carpooling with doom and illness” alongside a gifted forged of prog, goth, metallic, and indie legends effectively earlier than artists on that spectrum began to pop up within the credit of massive rap and pop albums. Each albums are visions of tech and commercialism run amok, sci-fi acid nightmares rendered all of the extra chilling listening in from the New York of 2020.

In 2010, El put Def Jux on what would grow to be an indefinite hiatus. A decade ravaged by leaks and music piracy, coupled with the trade’s early resistance to digital audio choices, burned holes within the pockets of many unbiased music shops. Nice labels shuttered. Nice albums slipped out of print. For years, FanDam and I’ll Sleep languished within the huge expanse of high quality music that’s not really easy to search out, whereas the heart beat of the music trade and the profession of the artist modified. Run the Jewels turned out to be a robust second act for each El-P and his accomplice in rhyme, Dungeon Household legend Killer Mike.
