During an u-stream press conferance El-P revealed that “Time Won’t Tell” which a video premiered for on Pitchfork today was inspired by political prisoner, Anthony Porter.
The indie rap pioneer went on to call Porter, “a Kafkaesque anti-hero”. El-P denounced the public outcry against Mr. Porter as “Uber-Orwellian.”
“This is a travesty. It sickens me. I intend to pen my version of “Killing an Arab” with A-Po as my muse.” El-P said defiantly, referring to the Cure song based on the classic existential novel The Stranger.
Anthony Porter stood silently with El-P in solidarity.
