Veteran Killer Mike’s fiery, old-school Southern rap has earned him a reputation as a larger-than-life personality armed with a loud, livid message and delivery to match. Aside from frequent collaborations with fellow Georgians Outkast, since his 2003 debut album Monster broke the top 10 he’s been almost exclusively an underground figure and one who’s not afraid to scream and shout about it. Sixth album R.A.P Music is out this spring and finds his template of gritty, sample heavy beats, stormy soul samples and domineering Ice Cube, Chuck D and Rick Ross-style hollering in finer form than ever before.
