REVIEW: EL-P’s “Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3”

Photobucket In hip-hop music or anything hip-hop related, it’s almost expected for something to be grandiose and bigger than life. To be honest, that’s how the music used to feel. Maybe saying “used to” is an indication of not just my appreciation for the old school, but also my age.

When something’s titled Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3, though, potential listeners focus on a few things. One, the title completely misses the seven syllable rule, a rule suggesting titles be seven syllables or less in order for it to be accessible and easy to say on the radio. Two, apparently we are all going to burn in hell. That alone summons fear from people who will see those words and go, “Nope, I will not touch this. There’s too much Illuminati talk in hip-hop, and this will not suit me in the after world.” Fair enough.
