El-P wowed us with his last Cancer4Cure release “The Full Retard,” a swarming, internet-age jam which is easily one of our favorite hip-hop songs of 2012. Now he’s offering up single number two, “Tougher Colder Killer,” which features his frequent collaborator Killer Mike as well as Despot. El-P and co. serve up yet another truly killer beat that’ll take you about twenty listens to really dissect, especially as it’s buried under title-appropriate brutal verses from all three. We’re seriously repeat rewinding to that moment toward the song’s end when the beat totally drops out for a paralyzing second before coming back in full force. Cancer4Cure drops May 22.
