In this exclusive clip Killer Mike is all about the music as he praises top lyricists from the past and present, recounts Big Boi putting him on game and details what could be in store for fans in the future. As the story goes, Mike was given his big break by Big Boi and went on to win a Grammy in 2003 for “The Whole World.” These days the two have over a handful of tracks, enough where they could drop an album – if they so choose.
Killer Mike also reveals him and El-P “were in the running” to be nominated for a Grammy award for their outstanding Run the Jewels 2 album. “We’re still the little guys,” he jokingly reasoned as he applauded Kendrick for his wins. Mike then went on to praise J. Cole for not having any features on 2014 Forest Hills Drive while comparing it to Nas’ debut album, noting both artists deserve to win Grammys for their work. “He has given a cultural expectation to a group of kids who didn’t have that marker before,” Killer Mike said of J. Cole.
