by Killer Mike (Rapper)
Killer Mike has been around for awhile. A member of the Dungeon Family (named for their recording studio in Atlanta), he first came onto the scene as a feature on Outkast’s 2000 LP Stankonia. Since then, he’s contributed to hit tracks by both Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. His debut album Monster was released in 2003, followed by 5 others. But it’s his most recent outing, R.A.P. Music, that is his most defining. Long time fans won’t be disappointed, and as a whole it’s a compelling introduction to the artist. Successful at being both intellectual and visceral, Killer Mike isn’t necessarily saying anything new - but what he says is real.
My favorite track on the album is Reagan. It could be used as the base for a lecture at any university, and then that night could be bumped from speakers at any house party.
Check it out and let it knock your stereo!
