Killer Mike to play The Rainbow Birmingham

Killer Mike

We’re teaming up with Birmingham Promoters to bring Atlanta’s finest Killer Mike to Birmingham!

Killer Mike made his debut on Outkast’s ‘Snappin’ and Trappin’ from the unforgettable ‘Stankonia’. After nearly a decade in the rap game he has released five critically hailed records, and also appeared on the Grammy-winning song, ‘The Whole World’. His track appearances read a who’s who of rap music, featuring collaborations with everyone from Jay Z, Talib Kweli, Cunninlynguists, Immortal Technique, Das Racist, MOP, Despot and many, many more. However, it his most recent solo record, ‘R.A.P. Music’ that has really grabbed everyone’s attention – currently being spotted in pretty much everyone’s ‘Best Albums of 2012′ list (see: Rolling Stone, TIME, Spin etc).

It’s no surprise that the beats come from Brooklyn, courtesy of Fan Dam favourite EL-P, a hip hop artist & producer who is the borough’s resident laureate of urban apocalypse. Killer Mike himself, in his hometown of Atlanta, is both underground royalty and an entrepreneur with his own Barber Shop. Fittingly, he’s the city’s iteration of Ice Cube, universally respected and highly opinionated; the bridge spanning The Dungeon Family, Grand Hustle, and his own Grind Time Records. ‘R.A.P. Music’ is a collision of north and south so savage that it could create a subduction zone.

Killer Mike plays The Rainbow Birmingham on Tuesday 12th February 2013. Tickets available here.
