Despot confirmed to support El-P

We are super hyped to confirm fellow native New York rapper DESPOT will be joining EL-P for his Birmingham show!

Despot has rapped acclaimed verses on releases by Das Racist and Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, performed in front of crowds of all sizes and musical tastes, and made enough money to purchase a diamond-encrusted ring shaped like the Forest Hills, Queens apartment building on 108th Street in which he spent his childhood.

He’s managed all this without yet releasing an album of his own, despite being signed to El-P’s sadly defunct label Definitive Jux back in 2004. However, the erstwhile Alec Reinstein, who approximated that he has been rapping for 17 years, is planning to release his debut album, entirely produced by electro-pop duo Ratatat, early next year.

Despot supports El-P on Saturday 15th September 2012 at The Rainbow Warehouse. Tickets available here.

Check out Despot & El-P providing verses for the Mr. Muthaf**kin’ eXquire track ‘The Last Huzzah’:
