Producer/emcee and Company Flow founder El-P dropped by the Red Bull Academy Headquarters recently and sat down with Chairman Mao to talk about numerous topics, one of which being his collaborative R.A.P. Music album with Killer Mike.
When asked about the two’s collaborative effort, El-P compared his work and understanding with Mike to Ice Cube’s debut solo album.
“When Ice Cube had a falling out with the whole N.W.A. camp he did a really surprising thing,” El-P said. “He went east and he worked with the Bomb Squad. At the time it didn’t make sense to anybody… Because me and Mike both had that history of knowing that that’s how that panned out, that reference was really good for us because in our minds, that’s what we can do.”
