One of the most powerful rappers of the Atlanta school, Killer Mike (Michael Render) barely revealed his true mission on the sensational Monster (2003), that included the Big Boi collaboration A.D.I.D.A.S.

He then began a trilogy with I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind (2006) and I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind II (2008), whose breathless street anthropology introduced him as an angry young gangster of rap, although rarely matched by adequate music.

That was partially remedied in the third part, PL3DGE (2011), that includes the political rant That's Life II, although the blaspheme confession of God in the Building II ("I need the pimps, pushers and prostitutes out in the streets/ That's where I'm seeking God because that's where he found me") sounds more sincere.

R.A.P. Music (2012), whose title stands for "Rebellious African People Music", strengthened his vitriolic and bombastic left-wing finger-pointing agit-prop word art with El-P's jarring soundscapes. EL-P and Killer Mike then formed Run the Jewels.
