Published Oct 18, 2007Pitchfork has revealed that Company Flow, the innovative hip-hop group from the '90s featuring El-P, Mr. Len and Bigg Jus, will possibly reform tomorrow night (October 19) at Def Jux's CMJ showcase. Set to happen at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg, the reunion isn't 100% just yet. Though a Def Jux (the label founded by El-P in the wake of the group's break-up) rep confirmed it's a go, El-P has given a carefully-worded statement saying otherwise:
"I don't want to make any official announcement on anything as nothing is confirmed yet, but if all goes right the fans will be getting more than is advertised on the bill. If all goes right we will be rocking songs we haven't done in years. It [may] mean all of us, it may mean two of us...and possibly it may not happen at all. I will know more later this week."
Responsible for one of the '90s most celebrated hip-hop albums, the mighty Funcrusher Plus (which turned ten this year), Company Flow split in 2000 after a tumultuous relationship with their label Rawkus and a spat between Bigg Jus and El-P. Len and El-P released a second and final album of instrumentals in 1999 called Little Johnny From the Hospitul.
