Killer Mike ft. Rock D - Swimming

Posted about 6 years ago
Producer:
Flying Lotus
Album:
Pledge Allegiance to the Grind 3

Whether you know him as Killer Mike, Mike Bigga or simply that dude who used to run with Outkast, there’s no denying that Mike stays on his grind – but I guarantee you’ve never heard him grind quite like this. While his last effort, the T.I. collabo Ready Set Go, was a prototypical banger, his new leak Swimming is the type of spacey, synthy track usually reserved for more adventurous rappers. Swimming owes much of its uniqueness to beatsmith Flying Lotus – whom many know as the unofficial DJ of the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim – and his eminently laid back beat, but Mike and guest artist Rock D balance out Swimming’s surrealistic sonic backdrop with some straight-forward, lady-lovin rhymes: “She said you got a woman, keep it straight with me / I said I got several, a couple you can date with me.” Will tracks like Swimming be the exception to the rule on Mike’s upcoming Pledge Allegiance to the Grind 3, or the new norm? We’ll have to wait until the street album drops…”soon.”
