Killer Mike follows up his critically acclaimed I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II with another ambitious project titled Underground Atlanta

Killer Mike follows up his critically acclaimed I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II with another ambitious project titled Underground Atlanta.

After participating in MTV’s signature series, My Block: Atlanta and taking the historical photo – “Great Day in Atlanta” with most of the cities’ hip hop talent present, Mike decided he needed to connect all these artists together again and feature them on one album. The idea of Underground Atlanta was born.

Atlanta is known for it’s hyped underground music scene and it’s diverse sound that includes Crunk, Snap & Pop and Trap Music. Mike enlisted a notable group of artists, some who are originators of this music, to be featured on the album. They include: Gucci Mane, OJ da Juice Man, Pastor Troy, Princess of Crime Mob, Yung Ralph, Big Kuntry King, Young Dro, T.I., Stat Quo, Bobby Creekwater, Da Bill Collector, Dem Getaway Boyz with appearances from fellow Southern rappers SL Jones, Scar and Juvenile. The album also boasts an appearance from UGK, who obviously aren’t from the Atlanta Underground but appear on a star studded remix that fans will gladly give Mike a pass on. Most of the tracks on the album were produced by DMG Music Group (B-Don, Leno and Young Ced). Mike wants his fans to have as much fun listening to the album as he had making it, “This is an Atlanta record!!! There is not just one type of Atlanta artist featured. This record is the ATL experience, welcome to Atlanta baby 4 REAL!”

Underground Atlanta precedes Killer Mike’s as-yet-untitled Grand Hustle debut, which he is currently recording. Mike sees this album as a way to give back to the Atlanta hip hop scene that gave birth to him and made him the artist he is today. Be on the lookout for Underground Atlanta in June on Grindtime Official/ SMC/ Fontana.
