16.Killer Mike-R.A.P. Music
Before this record, my only exposure to Killer Mike was his frequent collaborations with Outkast. Although I always dug his work on the tracks he did with Outkast, I never looked up his solo stuff. R.A.P Music made me instantly regret not looking up his shit sooner. R.A.P Music is a near-perfect balance of aggressive, hardcore hip hop and politically-driven, conscious, southern hip-hop. No matter what style is being tackled, Mike is on his game with intelligent lyrics and an impeccable flow. What drives the record home though is the production from El-P. His beats are synth-heavy yet still very southern-sounding, sticking to Mike's heavy southern influences. Killer Mike made a hell of an impression on the hip-hop world with this varied and memorable release.
