New Killer Mike is always an occasion, whether it's a quick guest verse, or a whole entire unreleased album. "10 G's" is from I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II, and it takes the Killer Mike as an aggressive NY-style rapper living in Atlanta idea one step further by putting him over a beat with a slowed Biggie sample and a gothic church organ. See, it's like New York and Atlanta are colliding instrumentally and vocally. Sidenote: It's not like we don't want Killer Mike to be happy, but it seems like the more annoyed and mad he gets, the better his music gets. Isn't there some kind of middle ground?
