Mr. Lif drops new album…one track at a time

In order to drop some real time knowledge on the masses, venerable alterna-hip hop emcee Mr. Lif has come up with a new way to produce his album.

Pitchfork Media is reporting that he wants to respond to current events as they happen, so he’s going to make and release a new single (or two) every three weeks until the election happens, then he’ll make one more responding to the election itself.

Bonus points for his creativity, but things like this are always tenuous.  They’re also dated as soon as you make them.  Five years from now, I can still see cats going out and buying a timeless album (Midnight Marauders, maybe?), but I’m not so sure that Mr. Lif will find that much of a market for his 2008 US Election album.

But then again, maybe that’s just me.

Hit us up in the comments and let us know what you think.
