Above, check the stream of "Big Beast," a massive new track from Dungeon Family associate Killer Mike that features guest spots from fellow A heads T.I. and Trouble alongside legendary Houstonian Bun B. It's the first peek from Mike's highly-anticipated new album, titled R.A.P. Music (or "Rebellious African People's Music"), due to hit the streets this spring.
If "Big Beast" is an indication of the overall vibe of R.A.P. Music, then golly gawdamn is this joint gonna be hot! Mike claims it's his "finest work to date," and based only on this one track I'm inclined to believe it. The album, produced by El-P (yes!) and courtesy Williams Street Records (an offshoot of Turner property/Atlanta-based weirdo animation think tank Adult Swim), is set to emerge May 15.
