How To Make Your Day Better 101: Listen to this track.
Our favourite Atlanta and New York marriage, El-P and Killer Mike, who form the hip-hop supergroup Run the Jewels have dropped the first taste of their upcoming album with the track ‘Talk to Me’. This week’s offering from the Adult Swim singles series, features a heavy af production the track also tackles some heavy issues.
As El-P kills the production, Killer Mike spits “Born black, that’s dead on arrival/ My job is to fight for survival/In spite of these AllLivesMatter ass white folk” in response to race issues in America. Killer Mike even manages a dig at Donald Trump, rapping, “Went to war with the devil and shaytan/He wore a bad toupee and a spray tan”.
‘Talk to Me’ was co-produced by Little Shalimar and Wilder Zoby, recorded by Leon “Yung Leon” Kelly and mixed by Joey Raia.
