MIXTAPE: Killer Mike – Bangx3

Download: Killer Mike – Bangx3

If there were any MC that I feel should’ve gotten on, it’s Killer Mike. Maybe the Atlanta MC is just to raw for mainstream audiences? Maybe his refusal to compromise hurt his career? Who knows. All I know is that Mike is one of the more prolific MCs in the game and–and I say this often–mad slept on.

When I saw Mike at A3C, he was angry. It was an anger born from broken record label promises and the general marginalization of him as an artist. However, with this new mixtape, Bangx3, hopefully Mike and his Grind Time aficionados can make some waves in 2011.
