Killer Mike is opening for Big Boi on an extensive US tour and you literally have no good excuse not to be there

We here at TMT love us some Killer Mike; check out our Favorite 50 Albums of 2012 list if you find that statement dubious. Last year’s R.A.P Music on Williams Street Records is so damn exceptional one is forced to use words like “scrumptious” and “ambrosial” when describing it. His tracks like “Go!” tend to be prefaced with hyperbolic statements like “what I am about to play is so good it will literally revive the dodo.” It’s often claimed his flow is so wantonly perfect they’re considering bottling it for use as an aphrodisiac. Now, obviously a song can’t live up to such a blatantly false and ridiculous thing, but his flow is actually that good. Between that and the fact that he and Big Boi are appearing in almost every major city across the US, you have no reason not to hit at least one of these shows.

Oh damn, right, Big Boi is technically the headliner of “The Running Shoes Tour.” Hey, that’s cool, we like Big Boi too. But Killer Mike’s music is so kinetic they use it to generate energy in nuclear power plants. How can you beat that?
