Killer Mike has kicked off his new solo album, MICHAEL, highlighted by “DON’T LET THE DEVIL (feat EL-P & Thank You Good Sir).” This is his first solo venture since 2012’s R.A.P. Music. The album reflects Mike’s roots in southern rap, church, and community. Collaborating with EL-P on the new track, the duo weaves lines over a tune by No I.D., EL-P, & Little Shalimar. Alongside the album buzz, Mike’s recent SXSW performance teased new tracks. He’s previously teamed up with El-P for Run The Jewels, producing four acclaimed albums. Outside music, Mike is recognized for his cultural commentaries, political support for Bernie Sanders, and acting roles, including a cameo in FX’s Dave and Netflix’s Ozark.
