Here's another excuse to add to our extensive list of Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Hip Hop.
Atlanta-based emcee Killer Mike released a new album today with producer El-P, and it is fantastic. Now, there was a time over the last 20 years where seeing should-be Braves fans rocking Pirates gear would cause me to flip out, with 1992 being a more than adequate excuse. Only Killer Mike rules. As does the old pillbox Pirates hat. And the Pirates are playing so well this summer that it seems like we're finally gonna wash away that sting of losing brought on by the tomahawk-choppers.
Oh, and since I can't forget the meat of this article, download the free album by the El-P and Killer Mike Duo now known as Run The Jewels:
It's good. They'll be in Pittsburgh in 2 weeks.
