Def Jux to re-issue Company Flow’s Funcrusher Plus

TAKE NOTE! there is something to do. Well, okay, not “something to do” but “something to buy” not really much of a difference there….ah..no. So mark that fucking calendar already and save some money, because now you got “something to buy” on May 5.

Definitive Jux has recently announced to me, by way of Tele-Type device, that they will be reissuing Company Flow’s (genius, genre-shattering, status-quo-altering) full-length debut Funcrusher Plus. Originally released in 1997, to widespread admiration.  Funcrusher Plus is “recognized as one of the most influential hip-hop albums EVER, shattering conventions with its musical complexity and uncompromising lyricism.”  T

Company Flow, consisting of producer/MC El-P, MC Bigg Jus, and DJ Mr. Len, created direct opposition to the hip-hop/rap stylings of the time. Doin away with the dying embers of the G-Funk, and rejecting the glitz that Puff Diddle was manufacturing — they opted for the lo-fi stark sound and intense rhyme structures.

Out of print since 2006, the newly remastered album will be available May 5 on digital, vinyl, and CD formats. The digital release will also feature rare pre-1995 tracks “Juvenile Techniques” and “Corners 94,” as well as post-Funcrusher tracks “Simple,” “DPA,” and “Simian Drugs.” The album will also be repackaged with its original artwork as done by Matt Do and graffiti legend EWOK.

Take it away, press release:

Beyond amassing legions of fans across the globe, few independent releases in recent memory have received the level of accolades and kudos from journalists, critics, and artists of all strata as this landmark album. Now a new generation of music fans will have a chance to hear what the fuss was all about.
