This uncut two-hour episode features an intimate portrait of “Killer” Mike Render: rapper, businessman, thinker and debater. Many know him as one-half of Run the Jewels, or from his days in the Dungeon Family, but this episode finds Mike (our guest) giving Michael (our host) a tour through the familial and musical histories behind his critically-acclaimed album R.A.P. Music. But it is not these two Mikes’ first encounter… just the first on record. After combing through the album’s finer details, the two Mikes engage for a spirited intergenerational debate on the innards of capitalism, surviving (or dismantling) the state, and some key moments from Killer Mike’s 2020. Come for the details, stay for the discourse. There is no Killer Mike interview like this anywhere else.
