"I've never really had a religious experience, in a religious place.
Closest I've ever come to seeing or feeling God is listening to rap music."
This is the first collaboration between Killer Mike and El-P (who produced the entire album), and it's incredible.
This is what real hip hop is. Forget about Jay-Z and Kanye, or Drake or A$ap.
Mike and El-P beat any of them hands down.
Stand out tracks include :
Reagan where Mike's anger and scorn come out of every word
Also check out the album that El-P and Killer Mike produced together under the name "Run The Jewels".
It's as good as this, with both Mike and El-P rapping an every track.

Not a bad track on this album, El-Ps production on here too is just top drawer as it just suits Killer Mikes vocals superbly. Speaking of which, Mikes lyrics and vocal style just leap out and grab you. You can see how Run the Jewels have trampled all in their path from the work on here (El only raps on one track though on this). One of THE best albums I have heard in a long time.

Coming across this album was the best musical discovery i ever made. Its the only album thats ever made me just sit there and think after listening to the whole thing. No lie, i was in bed, it was like 3am and when the title track ended i just sat up in deep thought. It sounds cliche and kinda corny but i dont give a s***, THIS ALBUM IS JUST TOO DOPE.
