Rap’s Delight: Killer Mike and El-P

El-P Killer Mike album cover

The week starting and ending with Killer Mike and El-P, respectively, is the mother of all peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Any hopes of letting their joint album (R.A.P. Music) simmer until El-P dropped his highly-anticipated Cancer4Cure LP went out the window. Today, Rolling Stone premiered a stream of El-P’s record a week before its release. Both albums are keeping the streets fed, and fat, now on the verge of leaving permanent skidmarks on audiences with a summer tour. Their brand of knowledgeable and through-provoking words will be in the company of Mr. MFN Exquire and Despot, supporting them on tour starting June 19th in ATL. We’ve come a long way since September 21st, 2011, when El-P stood effortlessly spitting like it was Definitive Jux circa 1999 in the video for Exquire’s “Last Huzzah.” For eight months that image, along with the one of Killer Mike toting an A-K, has been frozen in rap for the past eight months. They’ve been on their grind like Killer Mike’s affiliate rap gang, except he and El-P are prime time.
