Killer Mike Releases New Track with Frank The Butcher

On a steady and rapid rise to the top for the best part of two years, Killer Mike seems to be developing a “midas touch” of sorts when it comes to releases. From his own outstanding 2012 album R.A.P Music to the two critically acclaimed Run The Jewels albums with best friend El-P, not to mention the recently released Meow The Jewels, all under his belt, Killer Mike has cut his own space in the hip hop history books and for very good reason.

His Southern drawl is one that stands out from the rest, and his latest efforts in the form of Eat What You Kill. Collaborating with creative director/designer/producer/everything else Frank The Butcher, Mike lays down some imaginative rhymes over a droning, slow beat. Quite the step away from the typical, high energy Run The Jewels tracks, Mike sounds at home on this beat as his raps about one hell of a safari with a “violent rhino, angry hippopotamus, crocodiles smile, swim in lakes that are bottomless.

Eat What You Kill comes as part of a promotional seven-inch that was commissioned as part of Frank The Butcher’s new line with Puma. The line is of the same name as the track and, although it’s technically Frank The Butcher’s, Killer Mike is the true star of this show.
