First known to hip-hop audiences outside of Georgia thanks to attention-grabbing cameos on OutKast records, Killer Mike has been a steady presence for a decade, mixing Southern street anthems and political consciousness on a handful of records and a laundry list of features. His collaboration with producer El-P, the 2012 record R.A.P. Music, is some of his best work, winning over critics and fans alike. His incisive lyrics, played out over El-P's signature dystopian digital distillates of golden-era boom bap, reveal a talented storyteller, truth-teller and savvy political analyst. Killer Mike brings his commanding stage presence to the Summit this weekend, where he'll share a bill with legendary Wu-Tang member GZA.
