A Sufi and a Killer is quite possibly the most bizarre album I have ever had the privilege of listening to and to be honest that is saying quite a lot. To call this album drugged-out, hazy, murky, experimental, or anything else in a similar vein is a colossal understatement and in my mind also takes away from the greatness of the record. At times Gonjasufi's voice sounds like that of a dusty.
Gary Suarez was inspired to read Burroughs by Flying Lotus, so he went to see the producer's two recent dates in New York and asks why philosophical questions on death itself so infrequently appears as subject matter in hip-hop. You don't come back from something like death. Those revived on operating tables or in ambulettes otherwise narrowly escaping fatality have narrowly, fortuitously.
