Instant Excitement! Only way to describe the joy of seeing these two music giants Big Boi and Killer Mike finally collaborating to put together a full EP. For awhile now, they have played with the idea of doing it quietly piecing together songs but it appears it has reached a point where both feel the timing is right. If you look at the past collaborative projects these two have been apart of (Run The Jewels and obviously Outkast), how can you not get excited? The expectations are super high but they’ve been comfortable in that zone for years so it’s really no pressure.
“Me and Killer Mike, we’re gonna put out a little EP after I put out my next solo record or something like that. We’ve been entertaining the idea for a long time and finally got enough songs to where we just said the other night that we’re gonna do it.”
It’s going to be really interesting to see the timing of the project’s release, especially looking at the work Killer Mike has been doing alongside Bernie Sanders and being one prominent face at the forefront of active change in the political arena. This is an election year and countless tragedies have occurred within the African American community at the hands of police fueled by hatred, both causes in which Killer Mike has stood firm for. Although it is not necessarily a good thing that any of these lives have been lost, we’re anxious to see how it inspires the music coming from these two on the project.
Stay tuned as details emerge.
