Features Song Lyrics for Company Flow's Funcrusher Plus album.
Listening to Company Flow is not a casual experience. We always drew people down the middle," El-P remarked in an interview with Pitchfork earlier this year. There were never people who were like 'Eh, it's all right. It was either 'I wanna find those guys and beat them senseless because their crazy noise is hurting me' or 'This is fucking incredible.
Featuring material recorded over 1994-1997, Company Flow's official full-length debut, Funcrusher Plus, had a galvanizing effect on the underground hip-hop scene. It was one of the artiest, most abstract hip-hop albums ever recorded, paving the way for a new brand of avant-garde experimentalism that blatantly defied commercial considerations. Musically and lyrically, Funcrusher Plus is abrasive and confrontational, informed by left-wing politics and the punked-out battle cry "independent as f ck.
Funcrusher Plus ushered in a new era of underground hip-hop and it exemplifies what the underground is all about: simple, minimalist beats, low budget production and no regard whatsoever to commercial appeal. MCs El-P and Bigg Jus attack the mic with incredible ferocity and unbelievably intricate rhymes that take several listens to fully digest. Co-Flow tie together references from a seemingly bottomless grab-bag of comic book, pop culture and sci-fi references. Over time, El-P became the better known member but Big Juss is a very capable MC and may have a more fluid style than El-P.
