Before Killer Mike officially linked up with producer El-P and branded themselves as Run The Jewels, the two teamed up on Killer Mike’s last solo album R.A.P. Music back in 2012. It was a critically acclaimed project that showcased Killer Mike’s powerful lyrical messages over El-P’s sonic masterpieces. While we have been fascinated with the duo’s work as Run The Jewels, Killer Mike pleasantly surprised us with a belated music video for the track “Ghetto Gospel” off of R.A.P. Music

The visuals fit Killer Mike’s political and religiously charged lyrics as he plays the role of a preacher who has strayed from his righteous path.  From the spiritually delivered chorus to the hard hitting verses filled with critiques of racial inequality, Killer Mike takes us on quite the journey. The video reflects that as we see Killer Mike in all sorts of places ranging from church to the strip club.

Killer Mike and El-P have a natural chemistry together and it initially came into fruition on R.A.P Music. So while it is easy to set our complete focus on their Run The Jewels material, it is important to take a step back sometimes and revisit their earlier work. We’ll be looking forward to what the two have planned for 2014, but in the meantime watch the “Ghetto Gospel” video below and let us know what you think.
