Why is El-P controversial?[edit]

Why is El-P controversial? The article says that he is controversial numerous times but doesn't go into any detail as to why he is controversial.

Birthdate[edit]

I've been looking all over the internet for El-P's birth date but I can't seem to find it anywhere. 2 March 1975 is a qualified guess on my part. According to All Music Guide, El-P and Mr. Len formed Company Flow in 1992 after they had met at El-P's 18th birthday party. This would make 1974 or 1975 his birth year. He was born in March but I'm not sure if 2 March or 4 March is the correct date. If anybody can help out, even El-P himself, please do. Funkyvoltron 14:30, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, I read 2 recent articles stating his age. One said 31 and the other 32. I know his birthday was recent, so that makes me say 1975..with one of the interviews conducted just before and the other after. There was also a "happy birthday, El" forum post on DefJunkies on 03/04/07- http://defjunkies.com/showthread.php?t=6785. Post was made by Alaska- I am guessing he probably knows his birthday.

If Company Flow was formed in 1992 and the members first met at El-P's 18th birthday party and El-P was born in early 1975, one of the three items has to be wrong.91.13.100.162 21:23, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Renaming[edit]

Should we rename this article El-P? Funkyvoltron 18:52, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

I think so. -Dayv (talk) 13:55, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Why was the picture changed from File:El-p_promo2.jpg? I thought the first picture was fine, and it was a much better shot of El-P than the current one. The old picture seems to have its fair use and copyright tags all in order, so the change seems unwarranted.--Drewcifer3000 09:04, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Hip Hop recording artist[edit]

I just wanted to know why it says "hip hop recording artist" and not rapper, an editor reported me for vandalism because I changed it to rapper and said that it meant he's a rapper and producer. It is a very well known fact that he is a rapper and it is says in the article "and producer" So my question is why not call him a rapper, It's essentially synonymous and doesn't hinder or de-specify, in fact it's more specific. So why? PoofooP (talk) 02:23, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Please diversify the causes you feel the need to spend this much energy on. He is a rapper, yes. We don't need to cite that. He is also a producer, thus two types of recording artist, why you would you change it to one? "Recording artist" covers both, ergo, it stays. The more general the term the better for the opening lines of an article. Detailed specifics about his rapping are, later, all over the page. Please also familiariaze yourself with the type of editor described at WP:ICANTHEARYOU. This is the 4th time I've explained this to you. JesseRafe (talk) 02:52, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

You obviously have not read my response on your talk page which I wrote before this question, it explains my confusion and your flawed logic PoofooP (talk) 05:56, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
