Killer Mike : In Stores Now
Dare I say one of the most important albums of the year? Damn right I say it. Jay is for show, Clipse got crack rap, Nas might be close because he's hungry and still has something to prove and Game can't keep other people's name out of his mouth. (Seriously, is it possible for you to do a verse without mentioning someones name? Please, just try it once.) Anyways, Killer Mike's double alubm I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind is out now. Buy this and support this man. He's not afraid to tell like it is. His lyrics span from talking about the Superdome and a scathing critique of just about everyone in That's Life to typical rap braggadocio on Juggernaut (Flamin Hotz album with Trouble and Bass remix out soon) to incredible storytelling on Deuces Wild. Killer Mike is my favorite rapper by far. No one can touch him right now.
A couple videos are in order:
Here is Dope Story, an incredible machinima video with story rap at its best.
Deuces Wild - Another story rap this time using a sample from 1 is the Loneliest Number, not really a video but its still worth posting because the track is just that good so just scroll past and download the mp3 offered below.
All That Jizz - Maybe this will get him on MTV, Adult Swim special, just guess what its about. (Right click and save as so Deuces Wild keeps playing)
Pick up I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind at IAP or your local record shop.
Grind Time Rap Gang Bang! Bang! Bang!
