At the top of October, it was announced that Def Jux affiliate Mr. Lif inked a deal with the other MMG, Mello Music Group, with plans to re-release his album from 2002 dubbed I Phantom.
Although the Boston, MA emcee is now at home with a new label, his longtime friendship with El-P remains intact. Today, we revisit Mr. Lif‘s 2002 single, “Post Mortem” which features production plus a verse from 1 1/2 of Run the Jewels, El-P.
The song showcases the perspectives of 4 people as they look into the light of a nuclear blast. Basically, these are the final words from those who are essentially dead. Each individual flashes vast imagery of their closing thoughts before they are dissolved by the bomb.
