Indie Rap Icons Company Flow’s Raging Reunion

By Christopher R. Weingarten on July 18, 2011 10:20 AM

Backstage at Santos Party House during Company Flow’s first show in more than a decade, Pharaohe Monch tweeted in awe: “Most words ever. Lots of words.”

And, yes, words at the underground hip-hop icons’ triumphant Saturday night reunion gig came fast and furious. The notoriously verbose duo of El-P and Bigg Jus not only nailed every syllable of their loquacious back catalog, but shouted them, Run-DMC-style, until you could hear their voices getting hoarse. The crowd, red-faced and often bearded, seemed to be engaged in a secret contest over who could fling the highest percentage of impossible clusters back at the stage. It was celebratory, it was surging with unflagging energy, the group and crowd were completely raucous — er, make that [riotous…

But the night was definitely more “class reunion” than “victory lap,” mainly since there’s no contemporary hip-hop narrative to justify the return of Company Flow just yet. In the ’90s, their scene-defining “independent as fuck” ethos felt like Ian MacKaye spraypainted in wild style. But in 2011, “Fuck Time Warner and it’s affiliates” seems downright antiquated: “Internet grinding” is mostly a gateway to a traditional label deal and even underground rappers are scrambling to put Mountain Dew logos on their album covers. No, this was happening was because Company Flow’s heroes-in-murk Portishead asked them to play an ATP festival in London. One warm-up show in New York simply meant an extra night for everyone to go bonkers and hopefully remember the way they felt about hip-hop 10 years ago. So, with an energy rivaling fighting-weight Onyx, CoFlow brought back the ’90s, encased in amber, to its most rabid acolytes. Read More Here…
