This made my weeeeek! Killer Mike just dropped the first
video short film off his incredible new record, “R.A.P“. “Big Beast” (ft. Bun B. T.I. & Trouble) is my new bod mon anthem and this vid is larger than life – the only kind of visual that would do this track justice. Gory, hardcore and Tarantino-esque, it’s like… gangsterism for the zombie apocalype. We get flesh-eating strippers, axe murdering, decapitations and a whole lotta guts. Bun B., T.I. & Trouble all make appearances and El-P, the visionary producer responsible for the wicked beats all across Mike’s album, even makes a likkle cameo… yes, he’s the driver in the Reagan mask.
Whatever… I guess I get it if gore ain’t your thing, but I freaking love this video. I thought Killer Mike was dope as a kid, so I’m glad he’s back for REAL and not in some lame throwback way. He goes so hard for all of this, you can’t help but check out the whole record…and believe me, if you haven’t yet, kindly quit sleeping and cop it HERE ASAP. It will MOST DEFINITELY end up on every Best-Of-2012 list by the end of this year. No lie.
PS. If you’re in Toronto and you’re trying to catch Killer Mike’s bomb newness in person, he will be in concert next Sunday, June 17th for a FREE concert at Yonge-Dundas Square along with Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Action Bronson, Tre Mission, and yes, yours truly… Tasha the Amazon. See you there!
