El-P – “True Story”

I only know what El-P is saying 70% of the time he raps, and that’s after replaying his lines back at least three time a song. Cancer 4 Cure was one of my favorite albums from 2012— it’s got superb, paranoid production and insane wordplay and metaphors. One of them is a Seinfeld reference to George Costanza.

Pardon the fuzz I’m distorted, contorted, pardon the hiss / Don’t let them Henson me, enter me and control how I twitch / They say the holiest shit until flames around them get lit / Then Costanza the crowd of children…kick a baby to live

El-P references an episode of Seinfeld called “The Fire,” in which George Constanza literally forces a bunch of children and random people out of his way to run away from a fire. In his own selfish way of course. Classic Seinfeld episode.
