Tuesday night one of Atlanta’s hometown heroes blessed The Masquerade with his ghetto gospel.  Killer Mike shut shit down gloriously.  Appropriately so, the Into The Wild Tour kicked off in Atlanta and featured performances from Despot and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, as well as producer/rapper El-P.  But for me, that night was all about Mike Bigga; he made me “hip hop happy” (word to my dude blctxt for that one!) with his performance.  When I tell you this man has the energy of a cat 1/3 his size, you wouldn’t believe me until you witnessed him jump up over a speaker.  Mike performed most of his new album R.A.P. Music to a packed crowd, feeding off the frenzied energy like a hip hop zombie (too soon?).  He had suburban White kids chanting, “Fuck Reagan” and had way back supporters bouncing to “Kryptonite” like it was 2006.  And what’s “I’m On It” without Mr. Purple Ribbon himself?  Yep, Sir Lucious Leftfoot made an appearance that will surely be added to the Atlanta Hip Hop Archives.

Check out tour dates, video footage, and photos under the cut…

  1. […] If I had to use one word to describe Killer Mike, it would be consistent.  Consistently himself, consistently honest, consistently trill.  This latest interview with Montreality will attest to that description.  Mike Bigga speaks expressively about everything from James Baldwin’s influence to summer jobs he held has a teen to his favorite superhero to the legacy he’d like to leave.  So get to know Killa Kill a little better.  He’s cool as hell.
