Same. I like the El-P record as it is (btw, my favorite track is easily "For My Upstairs Neighbor"... and "Full Retard" but I've listened to that one a shitload before the album came out) but actual DJs who can scratch and not just yell dumb shit over songs have been sorely missing on tracks for many years imo. I love scratching. How often do you hear scratching on major releases nowadays? Not often at all. Good scratches on good rap albums are always welcome.

Oh shit, totally agree. I didn't mean a diss towards scratching on record in the slightest. Love it to death. I just wanted to point out El-P's willingness to do different shit within his own context.

So far it's Full Retard and Stay Down for me. Stay Down might have the edge.

Thesis & Ceschi were opening for YelaWolf last week here in Ottawa, and guess who Yela's DJ was?

Abilities! Yela gave him a section to flex on the cuts and do some ableton (probably) stuff with triggers. Sounded great! I really appreciate when artists who would get the same number of people out to a show with no DJ nevertheless engage someone truly talented to throw down behind them, just because that's what they're trying to do here.

Weren't the deluxe pre-order packages of this album supposed to be signed? Signed poster or whatever?

Danny Brown fucking ruins "Oh Hail No." I'm not even talking about his lyrics. It's his voice I can't stand. It's so irritating.

Still, "Full Retard" continues to dominate my iTunes. The beat is slinky dope, and I love hearing El go so hard on the lyrical tip.

I'm surprised, given that you find Danny's voice so grating, that you aren't put off by the Camu sample in "Full Retard."

The way I see it you're either trying reconcile my personal tastes in rap voices or passively trying to express that you think Camu Tao had an annoying voice. But I don't think a short sample and an entire verse are comparable. And Camu doesn't sound remotely like Danny Brown, or vice versa. The latter has a really irksome style and tone. Camu was a champ.
