Definitive Jux: Where Are They Now?


For a certain group of fans and listeners, the name Definitive Jux is synonymous with underground hip-hop in the early 2000s. Whether fervently beloved or derided as a haven for nerd rap, Definitive Jux served as a home for experimental, often exceedingly dark rap music that pushed a number of unlikely semi-stars who embodied the brazen dream inscribed on the inside of seminal rap group Company Flow's debut album: "Independent as Fuck." In 2010, the label ceased to function as a tradition record company, shifting largely to a promotional function for the projects of its founder, El-P, and some of its former artists.  Some three years on from the final days of underground hip-hop's bastion of independent spirit, we take a look at life after Jux for the label's key players.
