Get on it!
Should we really be surprised that Papoose doesn't know who El-P is? Shouts to Know Good for putting up the audio of that Whoo Kid interview with Pap:
I don't really get Know Good's confusion though. Why, yes, both Pap and P come from "the underground", their underground is different. If Pap had been in the game back in the mid 90s, they'd both be roaming the same circles... time's have changed. El-P and Def Jux (and other artists of that ilk) have formed a niche outside of that circle, while Pap is more of the street underground, which is different than the overall undergorund. Think about it: would you class Akrobatik and Papoose as the same kind of dude? Both aren't mainstream... think about it.
OK, final thought time. Gotta give it up to the Bachelors of Science, who turned a Bill Withers line into a sick DNB cut, which will be coming on their Science Fiction album. This is the video for "Anytime She Goes Away". DNB needs more videos like this, and period:
Until next time, enjoy your weekend!
