Killer Mike "Killionare"
Damn. Internet goes fast.
I was out doing a day in the life type story (coming out soon)on Killer Mike on Friday and we all went by Big Oomp Records off Campbellton Road. He owed DJ Jelly a freestyle for his upcoming mixtape and he wound up giving him one that's easily worth about 5. Mike ended up rapping over Lil Wayne's "A Millie" beat. Me personally, was tired of hearing niggas rap over the beat. But whats funny is that me and Mike had a convo about the commentors out there in the blogosphere thirsting for him to hop on the beat. Wishes were granted.
In the rap Mike said that he's "bout ready to go Pimp C part 3" and he pretty much did. Really, Mike went 2Pac "Hit Em Up" on them. Making that photo I took of him rapping all but too appropriate. The question everybody is going to ask about these rhymes is "who is Mike talking to." Granted, he speaks on alot of things in the rap, but if you take it for what it is, he ain't just, solely going at other people. Dude is attacking spirits, straight up.
The next few days are going to be very interesting. Mike has a video for his song "Pressure" with Ice Cube which is surely going to ruffle some feathers while these other rappers are out here having pillow fights. Then on July 8th, his album I Pledge Allegiance To the Grind 2 drops (more on that later).
But yeah, I was saying that the internets work fast because me and Mike were going to leak it on Friday, but the internet was down where I was at, so we agreed to go ahead and just leak it first thing Monday morning with a little propaganda attached. Then like 5 minutes ago I saw Shake had got it from Southern Style DJ HotSauce...with a video included. When I saw buddy whip out the Flip, I shoulda known what was up.
Anyways, Mike killed this beat and no one after him should bother hopping on it. The beat is a carcass at this point. Seeing and hearing him spit this reminded me of Jay-Z's line on "1,2 Ya'll" when he said "no disrespect intended, but if you're offended/I can't take it back, handle your business." Seeing has how Hip Hop is full of hit hollering dogs nowadays, I wonder what's gonna be said after this freestyle spreads.
