If 9th Wonder and David Banner's recent joint album Death of a Pop Star was a head turning listen, then 2011 will prove shocking for Hip Hop fans. Earlier this week, news broke that veteran southern emcee Killer Mike was teaming up with legendary Def Jux founder El-P to release a collaborative album.
Titled R.A.P. Music (Rebellious African Peoples Music), the album is set to be released mid-2011 through Adult Swim's Williams Street Records. Although few details have been revealed about the project, MauriceGarland.com reports that the album will "...also include production from a few of your other favorite 'underground' producers and MC’s."
Killer Mike took to Twitter to inform fans of his recent work with the Company Flow producer/emcee.

El-P also confirmed the duo's recent collaboration in a series of Tweets. He even posted a link for a short untitled snippet of a song.
