Killer Mike feat. Big Boi “My Chrome” (VIDEO)
Always loved this Killer Mike gem and could never figure why it didn’t go further. Circa ’02/’03 Killer Kill from Adamsville was my subject for a Mic Check in The Source; one of my first substantial pieces for the mag. The Source—actually, it was probably Columbia Records—flew me into Atlanta for the day, I had my boy Tariq meet me at Stankonia (where we conducted the interview) and Mike, ever the gracious host, offered up “trees” and drink.
Still don’t know how I got that 4,000+ word transcript down to a 700 or so word story. Mike was good money with me since the topics of discussion ranged from the importance of the Zulu Nation to how slept on was T.I.’s I’m Serious debut. I caught up with Mike early ’08 [via AllHipHop] and judging from the critical acclaim of his last project, I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II, Mr. Render is proof positive that talent and will is all you need to make your mark.
