Killer Mike has pretty much become my favorite person on the planet since I first heard RAP Music a year and a half ago. And he keeps popping up everywhere. For no real reason that I can discern, he just released a new video off that 2012 album a couple days ago - Ghetto Gospel.

I saw Run the Jewels with Kool A.D. and Despot when they were on tour and it was really great, I had a ton of fun.

He also voiced a character on Frisky Dingo, the previous show from Adam Reed and Matt Thompson (currently of Archer fame).

Killer Mike was also Taqu'il on Frisky Dingo.

If you like archer, you should watch Frisky Dingo.
Its the fucking Ulysses of the adult swim format.

I caught Killer Mike and El-P this past summer during the Run the Jewels tour (with bad ass Mr. MFN eXquire) and he made me remember why I love hip hop. In addition to having killer mic skills and a penchant for referencing my favorite spot in ATL (Magic City, son), he's just a great, great dude. We need much, much more Killer Mike and much, much less Kanye/Jay-Z.

I think we need both.

Killer Mike and El-P chat about wrestlers, God, camping and puppy love.

I've already made one FPP today, so I feel weird making another, so this video for dancehall artist Busy Signal's 'All in One,' where he rhymes over '90s hip-hop instrumentals and hangs out with Ugandan bikers? I'll just leave it here (via LargeUp).

I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II is an amazing album. Killer Mike is great. Lately he gets lots of props for the work he did with El-P, but his earlier work where he blends social conscious lines with coke rap is kinda awesome.

No love for Sealab 2021?

Shanks: Oh--I forgot to mention: Happy Funtime Island is home to the world's largest population of tree cobras.
Quinn: Happy Funtime?! Who the hell named this place?!
Shanks: ...Rambo.
