Killer Mike Speaks On Releasing Joint Album With Big Boi
Killer Mike says fans can expect "slum, drum Cadillac music" on his joint album with Big Boi of Outkast.
Only days after Beanie Sigel and Scarface announced that they would be dropping a joint album, it looks we can expect yet another joint project from two Hip Hop heavyweights. During an interview with HipHopWired.com, Atlanta rapper Killer Mike revealed that he’ll be working with fellow ATLien Big Boi on a joint album.
Killer Mike revealed that fans can expect a much harder sound when it comes to his album with Big Boi, a sound somewhat reminiscent of the Speakerboxxx track “Bust.”
“I’m looking forward to going back and forth with Big a whole record. Like people always like the collaborations we did,” Killer Mike explained. “And I’m not talking about the ‘Whole World’ stuff you know, the ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ I’m talking about ‘Bust.’ You know what I mean? Snapping and trapping. When it’s just me and him, just two pitbulls going at a bone.”
Killer Mike went on to explain that his skill set on a song tends to fluctuate depending on who he’s collaborating with.
“That’s what I enjoy cause my skill set goes up according to who I’m with so when I rap with Big Boi, T.I., and Bun B magic happens,” said Killer Mike. “So I’m looking forward to going 12 songs back and forth. And I’mma just tell ya’ll like my whole inspiration is that pimp, playa Big Boi shit. The beats I’m picking and bringing to it man, this gonna be some of that slum, drum Cadillac music. Believe that.”
No other details on Killer Mike and Big Boi’s album were revealed.
