Killer Mike / Michael

Killer Mike / Michael

Killer Mikeのなんと、11年ぶりのアルバム。近年はRun The Jewelsや、アクティヴィストとしての活動で、もの言うRapperの第一人者的存在になっているが、ソロ作としては久々のリリースとなる。
サンプリングを多用したTrackは硬派で、ストレート。Gospel, Funk, Soul, Bluesといった南部サウンドを総結集したようなTrackは、どれもかなりのクオリティになっており、Cee-Lo, André 3000, FutureといったDungeon Family勢などATL中心にメジャーなGuestを迎えて、高揚感のあるスケールの大きな作品になっている。
Killer MikeのRapは、相変わらず力強く、本人のこれまでの半生を振り返っている。
