1. Killer Mike — “Don’t Die.” (AUDIO)

    One man not scurred to drop overtly political raps in this troubled day and age is Killer Mike . The “educated villain” hailing from Atlanta has a strong, timely message to all the dirty cops disrespecting the badge with his latest hard hittin’ all-points-bulletin “Don’t Die” from the upcoming R.A.P. Music LP. Produced by El-P , the ominous fuck tha police anthem thumps with high tension, a deadly combination of thermally nuked Nintendo sounds, air raid sirens and swarming synthesizing mayhem that goes Larry Davis. Album drops May 15. Cop it.
