On July 13th, Killer Mike packed out the Tabernacle in his beloved hometown Atlanta, GA. On tour for his first solo album in 11 years, MICHEAL, the show was filled with crowd participation, super energetic, and empowering.
On the stage decorated as a pulpit and joined by a small choir (the Midnight Revival), Mike tapped into the perfect combination of gospel and multiple eras of ATL rap. His show included guest performances from Cee-Lo Green, Big Boi, TI, and Fabo. Throughout the show, Mike spoke uplifting affirmations to the audience contributing to the setting of a Black church.
MICHEAL-- whose cover is a childhood photo of Mike with devil horns and a halo is an autobiographical deep dive into his journey from childhood to rap stardom. He musically journals black culture through his experience as a black man growing up in the South. The album was executive produced by No I.D and features Andre 3000, Young Thug, EL-P, Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Blxst, Curren$y, Mozzy, and more.
