  • Killer Mike released his sixth studio album on June 16. “Michael” is the Atlanta emcee’s first full-length solo project since 2012’s R.A.P. Music.
  • Killer Mike used his own money to create the album, and when talking with Ebro Darden from Apple Music, the Run The Jewels member said he did it without his wife’s consent.
  • “This matters because I spent half a million dollars without asking my wife,” Killer Mike told Darden. “At about a quarter million dollars, she was just like, ‘What the f___ are you doing?’”
  • I was like, ‘I’m making the album I’ve always wanted to make.’ And she’s like, ‘We’re a quarter million short. That could have bought a whole nother quarter of a block.’”
  • The money was likely spent on features as the album boasts appearances by fellow Atlanta natives CeeLo Green, Young Thug, 6LACK, Jagged Edge, Future, 2 Chainz, and André 3000. Plus, Killer Mike recruited other artists like Mozzy, Eryn Allen Kane, Ty Dolla $ign, and Curren$y.
