Motherfucker, Did I Sound Abstract?!
Sadly I never saw Company Flow perform live, but I did get to see El-P when he came to town after Fantastic Damage was released. He brought with him a gritty entourage of like-minded emcees and Dj's, including MHz and assorted Def Jukies. The show was of course live as fuck, and everyone was on point. At the end of the proceedings, I got his attention, and slipped him a few cd's from me and my homies. He took one look at the covers, festooned as they were in images of weed fields and B-movie actors, and burst out laughing. Then he very carefully tossed them at RJD2. And that was as close as I ever got to fame. Here's Volume 2 of early El-Productions from 1994-2000. Pre-Jukie days. Noisy, experimental, and hip hop as heck.
