Killer Mike ft. Scar - Untitled

Posted 4 years ago

When a record or album is Untitled, you know what you’re gonna hear will be raw, real and straight from the soul. Which is weird, if you think about it—why pour out your deepest thoughts and feelings on a cut and then toss it in the can without giving it a proper name? Regardless, the latest leak off Killer Mike‘s forthcoming full-length follows this blueprint to a tee. Backed by the grimy, keyboard-driven grooves of underground veteran El-P, the Dungeon Family vet drops bars as gutter as they are are philosophically astute, tearing into government and organized religion as well as remarking on the power of both circumstance and divine providence to shape a human soul: “It takes a woman’s womb to make a Christ or Dalai Lama / The world might take a child, turn that child into a monster / The Lord’ll take a monster and fashion him a saint / I present you Malcolm X for those who sayin’ that He can’t.” In between Mike’s bars, Smoke and Ride Out singer Scar grabs the mic to deliver a soulfully gritty hook. Feeling it? More R.A.P. (Rebellious African People’s) Music awaits on Mike’s sixth full-length, scheduled to hit store shelves and online retailers May 15.
