Killer Mike - "Big Beast"

For a long time now, we’ve heard rumblings about a new collaborative album from badass Atlanta rap snarler Killer Mike and New York skronk-rap king El-P. This morning, we get confirmation that it exists. El produced all of the new joint R.A.P. Music. (That title stands for Rebellious African People’s Music. Sure, fine.)

Below, we’ve got the first track we’ve heard from that album, and it’s a total monster. “Big Beast” features El turning a sample of Public Enemy’s “Public Enemy No. 1″ into a different sort of thunderous blare, and it also features verses from Atlanta monarch T.I., wizened elder Bun B, and volatile young gun Trouble. And, I mean, fucking hell, T.I. on an El-P beat, goddam. 2012, everybody. Listen below, and be aware that this shit bangs so hard.

R.A.P. Music is out 5/15 on Williams Street.

  1. MIke has been the most under-rated rapper from Atlanta for the past 5 years, probably longer. While Atlanta gets so much shit for producing vapid trap music, this man is one of the most intelligent, yet gangster rap artist around. More rappers need to aspire to what this man is doing and has done for years. Keep it real mike, and props to T.I. to recognizing true talent.
