DEAR LORD, HAVE MERCY ON THE ONES WHO GO THROUGH LIFE LIKE IT’S A GAME

I’m not sure how many rappers besides Killer Mike can be this compelling and look this credible in both of these contexts.  I’m not saying he’s the only dude who can pull off talking about scoring Viagra off his grandpa in one video and posing as a beheaded Holofernes (and/or John the Baptist?) in another, but he’s gotta be on a pretty short list.

Killer Mike – A.D.I.D.A.S. (feat. Big Boi)

Killer Mike & El-P – Untitled

After seeing the shocking powerlessness depicted in 8Ball’s “Lucky’s Theme Song” video from last month, I think I’d put him on that list too.  And maybe Biggie.  That might be it though.  Thoughts?
