1. Killer Mike, “Don’t Die”
Atlanta rapper Killer Mike is undisputedly one of the most underrated rappers in the game right now. And his 2012 album R.A.P. Music further cemented him as a gifted and commanding MC, with 12 stellar tracks that don’t let up one bit. The album’s standout cut “Don’t Die” also proved Killer Mike to be a vibrant and socially aware individual, who has his eyes (and ears) to what is really going on in the inner city concerning police.
