Video: Killer Mike “Untitled”
I haven’t really written about Atlanta rapper Killer Mike’s amazing album R.A.P. Music that was released back in May for Thought on Tracks, but that’s not because it isn’t one of the best albums of the year. The album’s bombastic production from El-P fits like a puzzle piece with Mike’s booming delivery, giving R.A.P. Music a sound as heavy as its message. Mike has already released a short film for “Big Beast” , which features verses from Bun B and T.I. as well as a crew of zombie strippers that make the video unlike any you’ve seen this year. A few weeks back I selected the live, studio rendition of “Untitled” for my video of the night on Twitter, as it’s one of my favorite songs on the album. Well now “Untitled” has gotten the official video treatment and the visuals are equally dope. The moving pictures concept is well done and contains graphic religious and historical imagery that match Killer Mike’s vocals perfectly. “Untitled” is also the first video I’m aware of that depicts the decapitation of the artist who made it, that’s gotta count for something. Peep the vid below and grab your copy of R.A.P. Music here.
