We're living in the end times.
This week, the Center For Disease Control weighed in on the recent spate of brutal, zombie-like cannibal attacks that has shaken the nation to its core and made it really, really difficult to score a copy of Sean Of The Dead at my local video store. According to an issued statement, the CDC "does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead, or one that would present zombie-like symptoms." Still, the vicious murders continue, but they've been missing something, a certain je ne sais quoi that none of us could quite put our finger on. Until today.
The zombie apocalypse needs an anthem.
Enter avowed 99-Percenter and accomplished Adult Swim voice actor Killer Mike. He just sent us his new video for "Big Beast," the first single of last month's R.A.P. Music LP, out now on Williams Street. In this very NSFW video, Mike, T.I., and Bun B go on a brutal killing spree, complete with zombie strippers, axe attacks, a fuck ton of gore, and a special appearance from El-P, who produced the entire record.
You can pick up R.A.P. Music right here, and check out Killer Mike's "Take To The Wild" tour, with El-P, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, and Despot - find the full schedule below.
