An awesome reissue of Mr Lif’s debut album I Phantom. Originally on El-P’s now defunct Def Jux imprint it features many of the key players including El-P himself, Aesop Rock, and Vast Aire. If you’ve missed out on anything to do with Def Jux, this is a good place to start, showcasing leftfield hip-hop done well. There certainly aren’t many concept hip-hop albums around.
