Killer Mike & El-P x The Combat Jack Show Ep. 1


Killer Mike and El-P visit The Combat Jack Show to discuss the genius of their collaborative relationship – a partnership most recently responsible for Killer Mike’s latest release R.A.P. Music, co-produced by El-P. Dallas Penn breaks down the crazy lyrics to Mike Bigga’s “Untitled” – a hulking masterpiece of ghetto gospel full of crisp quotables and booming production – and El-P gushes with pride about Mike’s evolution as an MC. Killer Mike made a choice to dictate and redefine his career on his own terms after a bout with industry adversity that saw him getting little to no love, even from once-avowed fans. With R.A.P. Music Killer Mike and El-P are owning the competition. El-P feels that Killer Mike is entering his true genesis with a record that was produced in the spirit of personal truth and reckless abandon, aided in-part by a few choice hors d’oeuvres. Check the interview below. Keep an eye out for part 2.
