This is where Mr. Len, the Bronx-born DJ, producer, and co-mastermind behind the independent hip hop phenomenon known as Company Flow, is coming from.

Mr. Len spent the last six years recording, performing and touring the world with Company Flow, and helping give rise to the global indie/underground hip hop sensation through the groups seminal release Funcrusher Plus (Official/Rawkus). Pity the Fool is his first solo offering, and it goes far beyond anything hes done. The album is like sonic graffiti, full of hard, dark funk, subversive melodies, gritty street-beats, fractured dub bass and the inimitable DJ skills that established Mr. Len as an innovative master. His collaborators comprise the best of whats happening in the underground today: Juggaknots, Mr. Live, Mass Influence, Dilated Peoples, Jean Grae, and Arsonists to name a few. He takes things where theyve never gone before, pushing the possibilities of hip hop while dipping into electronic styles too often left alone by his peers.

Pity the Fool is an astounding effort which breaks codes all the while forming new ones. Its what the state of hip hop will be two years from now.
