El-P Once Got Booed Off Stage While Opening For Beastie Boys

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Although El-P and Killer Mike rip apart stages these days as the potent duo Run The Jewels, that wasn’t always the case for the producer-rapper during his time in Company Flow in the late ’90s. During RTJ’s opening tour date stop in Philadelphia this week, El shared a comical story of how his old crew got booed off stage while opening for Beastie Boys.

Some fans might remember that Company Flow, consisting of El, Bigg Jus and Mr. Len, were one of the underground’s biggest acts of the 1990s. Fresh off a European tour and seemingly unpublicized breakup, the trio embarked on powering through a set in 1998 at The Electric Factory, the same venue where RTJ played to a sold-out crowd this past Wednesday (Jan. 11).
