With the exciting news that his and Killer Mike‘s fourth Run The Jewels project arrives in early June, El-P has also provided fans with an extra gift ahead of that.

For the first time ever, El-Producto’s solo debut album Fantastic Damage is now available on the major streaming platforms, in honor of its 18th birthday. This album marked the musician’s start as a solo artist, following his career as the frontman of both Company Flow and his own Def Jux label.

“This album is raw and noisy and f**ked up and exactly how I felt when I made it,” El-P reminisces about the album. “It’s the first time I ever tried to tackle a whole record on my own all those years ago. It was produced and recorded and mixed in my bedroom/studio in the apartment in Brooklyn I lived in at the time, right around the year 2000. It’s not where I am now but it is a moment that really meant something to me and it’s a huge part of my DNA as an artist so I’m glad to finally be able to get it back out there. Not only for those who knew it and missed its presence but for anyone who may have not known about it before now. I hope you enjoy this and thanks for all the amazing support over the years. I love doing what I do and I live to keep pushing forward. Fantastic Damage is, in a lot of ways, the start of all of it.”
