CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

Cancer For Cure is a triumph of imagination and intelligence in service of a pervasive sense of personal and political unease.

85
Pitchfork

The textures and tones are distinctly different from past releases, but it's unimaginable that it could be made by anyone else. 

85
The 405

Cancer 4 Cure grounds hip hop, taking it back to when it was seen as the new punk rock.

85
Beats Per Minute

This is a high point in his already illustrious career; a labyrinthine and ultramodern take on hip-hop that will likely age like a Cabernet.

Cancer For Cure is a dependably bold, powerful statement, perhaps not quite as masterful as its predecessors, but still overflowing with ideas and innovation.

80
Consequence of Sound

The roads in his mind are curling back onto themselves like a mobius strip and more than ever, most of the verses on Cancer 4 Cure are infinite loops, cannibalizing his own words over and over.

80
FACT Magazine

Tthe music is certainly some of El’s most engaging yet, and should possess real lasting power.

80
Drowned in Sound

For all its darkness, paranoia and rage, Cancer For Cure emerges as one of the year's most endlessly re-playable records.

72
Paste

Cancer For Cure is a shirked, claustrophobic, paranoid clutter of rhyming conspiracy theories.
