Killer Mike - I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II (2008)
Mike’s “soundtrack to your success”: think Nietzsche meets Jeezy: fire your damn boss and be the best you can be. Almost retains that level of energy through Mike’s impressive shifting between HAND OF GOD acid spitter, Clipse crack philosopher, and Scarface southern church goer. Best moment comes when he’s none of those things, just a disappointed guy asking a simple question to his (white) oppressor: “how could you not want to see me prevail?”, or when he says if Jesus came back he’d join him for his crack sales, murders, and sermons. Beats are mish-mash dirty south hybrids.
