Yesterday was a good one. Among the things that happened: a friend saw (via facebook) that I was listening to Killer Mike on spotify. She told me she might cross paths with The Killer and wanted to know more.
Getting asked to talk about Killer Mike (or really anything in the extended Dungeon Family) is an awesome thing that doesn’t happen to me very often. KIlla Kill from Adamsville, as he is known, is one of my very favorite rappers of the last fifteen years. If you like Outkast, you will definitely like Mike. Righteous anger is what Killer Mike does best maybe, but he does some other stuff expertly as well. The new album is totally great, although not as good as Pledge 2 or The Killer Mixtape, which are my favorite.
But I think the above ten songs are all great, so listen to one or two, and see what you think. Special cameos by Jay-Z, Outkast, and T.I. among others, if you aren’t already sold.
The friend was Caitlin, who has a very funny blog that you might want to read if your my mom trying to keep track of my friends, or just like funny blogs.
