El-P didn’t even put out an album this year and he still owned it. He reunited with Company Flow, dropped a new track, remixed it with Rush, and appeared with Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire & Friends on “The Last Huzzah“, which landed on our Top 50 Songs of the Year. It ain’t over yet.
As unlikely as the pair may be, Prince and Metallica just got the El-P mashup treatment. El-P had this to say about the track:
“I was asking people who follow me on Twitter about who the most anti downloading/digital music musicians were and we landed on Metallica (who I dont give a shit about) and Prince (who is one of my biggest influences). For fun, I put this thing together comprised of Metallica’s “Unforgiven Part 2” and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”
And to complete the circle, download the mashup below.
