El-P to team up with Killer Mike on new project
Following the current success of El-P's Cancer 4 Cure, it seems the last thing the rapper wants to do is sit back while he enjoys this rich vein of form.

This follows on from the pair teaming up earlier this year to work on the Killer Mike album, R.A.P. Music where El-P had complete reign over the production.
