Killer Mike has great timing. Not only did he pick the perfect year to start working with El-P, his planning to drop this video is impeccable. It was released the same day as the crucial Presidential debate taking place that evening. The hyper-political R.A.P. Music track gets a hyper-political animated video. Anyone who has listened to this record has heard this song. And for those of you who haven’t yet, right now is the perfect time. Tour dates listed below.
Nearly a decade deep in the rap game, Mike has released five critically hailed records and won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group with Outkast for the song “The Whole World.” But, in no uncertain terms, Mike will tell you that R.A.P. Music is his finest accomplishment. He’ll even call it a “classic.” Of course, every rapper calls every one of their albums a classic. The only difference is that Mike’s right.
The Reagan 7″ is the quintessential companion piece to Killer Mike’s critically acclaimed LP R.A.P. Music produced by El-P. Dropping on Election Day (11/06), the release is limited to just 1500 copies on white vinyl. “Reagan” video director Daniel Garcia also contributed to the album artwork. You can pre-order it now with a t-shirt here.
