Known for his hard hitting lyrics and powerful, inspirational messages in his music, Michael Render, better known as Killer Mike, released his 6th LP entitled R.A.P. Music (Rebellios African People).
The album, entirely produced by hip-hop artist EL-P is a modern-day classic from start to finish. Some memorable tracks are “Big Beast” featuring TI. ,Bun B and Trouble which kicks off the piece with heavy music and southern heat, “Untitled” featuring Scar, “Don’t Die” and “Reagan”; each, like every other track on the album sending striking and powerful insight into society in the aspects of the past, the present and the future, painting a unique portrait of a not just a people, but a way of life that resonates after each listen.
On the title track “R.A.P. Music” Killer Mike states, “The closest I’ve come to seeing or feeling GOD is listening to rap music; RAP music is my religion…Amen.” This closing track sums up the entire album as a whole, bringing Killer Mike’s emotions and thought processes back around full circle.
