Album Review : KIller Mike - R.A.P. Music

My rules of hip hop
1) Don't have boring beats
2) Don't have shit lyrics

Well that was simple wasn't it? As long as both these boxes are ticked then the chances are I'll like your record & Killer Mike's R.A.P. music passes this test with flying colours. With interesting beats produced by the legendary EL-P & some very strong well-informed lyrics this album comes very close to what I'd consider a perfect hip hop album, it's quite versatile too, the are songs to dance to and songs to groove to with a healthy dose of hooks to help you go along for the ride. This is a very strong entry into Killer Mikes blossoming career and I cannot wait for more, especially if the self titled closer is anything to go by, this is hip hop with ambition.
