His lyrics are damn good, don't get me wrong. But I remember my mind being blown specifically the first time I heard his production on I'll Sleep When Your Dead. I haven't heard Fantastic Damages yet either, so that may be the case.

Hell yeah dude. El-P has always been super underrated as a lyricist i feel like.

I love this verse in particular

Yeah
Your revolution is young with a strange fragrance
Vacuum sealed piety working for corporations
Life is complicated I know activists
That poor their heart out to an audience
That's completely ****ing complacent
God forbid we're catch back stage being human
Public image limited to the purity of your movement
That was quite confusin
I know white rappers who claim they're more artistic
and advanced than the inner city tune is
Now you're ****ed up and can't move units
Cause you know nothing in a culture that created hip-hop music
Stuck in an authenticity contest with a bunch
of cats that grew up in the exact same way that you did (Now where do you fit?)
I'm talkin centipede that **** that slides on its dirty ab pack
dirty def fretless bass pipe don't believe the hype
Don't act fugazi, don't tell me the rules
I'm the ruler and I'm mother****ing crazy

Not sure where else to ask this, but is there any discussion of foreign (non-english speaking) hip hop on this forum?

Not too much unfortunately, but I'd love to discuss it if you're interested in starting a thread about it. I'm sure there are others around who'd be interested as well. I have some suggestions of my own in that department and was very intrigued by your mention of French hip hop in your intro post.

My friend showed me Zeebra. It's the only song I've heard by him, but I liked it.

Yeah cool, I'll do that tomorrow and will make some proper recs. Too tired right now though.

I made a thread on hip hop outside North America, which has some non-English speaking songs and artists in it.
