A Question for the Heads.

I'm wondering if El-P and Aesop Rock are the David Lynchs of hip-hop. Before you shrug that off, think about it. Both have the attributes of being impenetrable with iconoclastic flows engrained with a deep sense of clastrophobia, exactly like David Lynch. They are both based in the core of hip-hop. But, they draw detractors. Some people see them as visionary. Others see them as pretentious. No one can really diss the pure skills displayed by either, but there is plenty to critique on the actual presentation and content. There is much passion within this argument as well. I know my answer. You probably know my answer, but I'd like to know where you stand. Let me know. Leave a comment.
