Brooklyn rapper El-P has long been a driving force in alternative hip hop, but it’s been more than five years since his last solo album, ‘I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead’.

He’ll finally follow up the 2007 release this May (28th), with ‘Cancer for Cure’, coming via Fat Possum – a label said to have been John Peel’s favourite, and one that until now has heavily specialised is all things garage rock, rather than hip-hop.

The first track to come from the album is ‘The Full Retard’, which references the movie Tropic Thunder. You can download it for free below.
