R.A.P. Music by Killer Mike
Nobody since Ice Cube has balanced the street with the socio-political as well as the fiery rhymer from Atlanta. And on his eighth release, Killer Mike proves that he hasn’t lost a bit of inspiration, rage or perspective. From the opening of the explosive “Big Beast,” Mike reminds you of where he’s from—with an assist from fellow southern luminaries Bun B and T.I. Mike and superproducer El-P are a perfect marriage, and the able peaks on the powerful “Reagan,” as Mike raps about his concern for young people as “all we seem to give them is some ballin’ and some dancin.’” One of the greatest rappers in the game.
