Killer Mike to tour with El-P in support of *R.A.P. Music* + New tracks on Adult Swim

KILLER MIKE TO TOUR WITH EL-P IN SUPPORT OF R.A.P. MUSIC

LISTEN TO NEW TRACKS AT ADULT SWIM

PREORDER KILLER MIKE’S R.A.P. MUSIC HERE

Atlanta-born rapper and Grammy┬«-Award winner Killer Mike will release his self-proclaimed finest work to date with the debut of R.A.P. Music on May 15 from Williams Street Records. The album, which was produced entirely by El-P, Brooklyn’s resident laureate hip hop artist, producer and entrepreneur, features a line-up of tracks that both deliver on rap’s most basic level and simultaneously document the socio-economic discrepancies and racism that still plague America today. With the album’s title acronym representing “Rebellious African People’s Music,” it takes its influences from all genres of music black people have rebelled through, including gospel, jazz, soul, rock and funk.

The R.A.P. Music album page is now up on Adult Swim and features two unheard tracks off the LP, “Jo Jo’s Chillin” and “Southern Fried”. Listen to clean versions of the tracks here or if your ears prefer it dirty listen to “Jo Jo’s Chilln” here and “Southern Fried” here.

This summer Killer Mike takes his talents on the road in support of R.A.P. Music. Album collaborator El-P will join Killer Mike along with Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire and Despot on an all-star North American tour. Check out the tour dates below.
