The Numbers Game: El-P

It’s been a busy month for for El-P. Not only did he fully produced Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music album (We talked about that last week here), his third album Cancer For Cure enters the charts this week. We won’t give Cancer For Cure the full nappyafro review treatment but I’ve been checking it out and I kinda like it. Plus it has a song with both Danny Brown & Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire on it (To be honest it’s not that great a song but still…). Cancer For Cure lands at the #69 spot and sells 6,600 units.
