After receiving much critical acclaim following 2008s I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II, Killer Mike has set his talents on a new LP celebrating Atlantas rich Hip-Hop history.
Dubbed Underground Atlanta, the project was originally conceived several years ago during MTVs My Block: Atlanta series, which brought together the citys Hip-Hop stars for the historic Great Day in Atlanta photo.
Amongst colleagues and friends with styles ranging from crunk and snap to trap and pop music, Mike believed he could showcase an album illuminating the complete landscape of Atlantas diversity and talent.
This is an Atlanta record! Mike exclaimed to AllHipHop.com. There is not just one type of Atlanta artist featured. This record is the ATL experience, welcome to Atlanta baby, for real!"
Confirmed artists for Underground Atlanta are T.I., Gucci Mane, OJ da Juice Man, Pastor Troy, Princess of Crime Mob, Yung Ralph, Big Kuntry King, Young Dro, Stat Quo, Bobby Creekwater, Da Bill Collector, and Dem Getaway Boyz.
Non-ATL guests include UGK, SL Jones, Scar, and Juvenile.
The bulk of the albums production will be handled by the DMG Music Group (B-Don, Leno, and Young Ced).
Underground Atlanta will function as a lead-in for Killer Mikes pending Grand Hustle debut.
Also, the LP allows the Adamsville emcee to give back to the city thats made him a star.
At press time, Underground Atlanta is tentatively set for a June release.
