Big Boi stopped by to bless DJ Greg Street with the fresh out the box exclusive of the latest track from his upcoming project Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors.  Produced by Organized Noise Big K.R.I.T., he and UGK (yes, the late Pimp C is on this thang) turn this into a true country rap tune.  The South is outchea!  General Patton’s new album is scheduled for November 13th.  FYI, this is a radio rip, but as soon as the dirty version is available, it’ll be here.

UPDATE: Big Boi released the CDQ version.  Here it go.

I recently took some time to check out Ice-T’s directorial debut, Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.  The documentary features MCs and producers that have influenced and have been influenced by the genre of hip hop.  Going into the film, my expectations were that of a lover of hip hop, someone who enjoys and respects the art.  I expected the artists to regal us with stories of how they were introduced to rap and the role hip hop has played in their own lives.  In that regard, the film did not disappoint.  From Grandmaster Caz of the Cold Crush Brothers to Rakim to Kanye West to MC Lyte, each artist had a stirring anecdote on their induction into hip hop history.

I’ve been gone for a minute but this video right here?? Shit ignited a fire that needed to burn. Killer Mike’s video to his single “Big Beast” from his new album R.A.P. Music is just that…a fuckin’ monster. Director Thomas C. Bingham took the Tarintino route–gore, violence, gangstas, titties, and bad ass attitudes. It is impactful as it is entertaining. The cinematic perspective is one that has long been devoid in the realm of hip hop videos. As Killer Mike so eloquently stated, “I don’t make dance music, this is R-A-P/opposite of that sucka shit that they play on t.v.” And unless there are insurmountable edits, don’t even worry ’bout it hitting BET anytime soon. But feel free to check it out under the cut…

Shawty.  This shit is soooo nasty.  One of those tracks that belongs in your ride.  For real.  Your computer speakers won’t even truly do this track justice.

Everything about this joint knocks so hard.  As usual, Killer Mike does not disappoint.  He combines his monstrous, hard-hitting lyricism with El-P’s extraterrestrial bass to create just a piece of the eagerly awaited collaboration R.A.P. (Rebellious African People) Music (yes, the title is dope as fuck).  Mike enlisted kings of the South, Bun B and T.I., which gives this track crazy credibility.  Oh, and don’t sleep on that artwork, either–from fellow ATLien Fahamou.

R.A.P. (Rebellious African People) Music drops on May 15.  Pow muhfucka!
