Nas' 'Illmatic', 'Ready to Die' by The Notorious B.I.G., and Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' - you just know a hip hop record is going to be fire if the MC sticks a photo of themselves as a kid on the sleeve. 'Michael' is Killer Mike's first album in eleven years, a work which follows on from 2012's acclaimed 'R.A.P. Music' and four albums with El-P as Run The Jewels. Expect to hear intricate rhymes about his upbringing in Georgia state over soulful yet hard-hitting production. El-P and No I.D. feature as producers, and Young Thug offers a verse.
