On “Dont Die” Killer Mike hurts the people he wants to hurt (dirty cops and rappers aspiring to the Forbes list) with his singularly impassioned, indignant delivery, something he does very well. He dedicates the track, from his upcoming collaborative album with El-P, to victims of brutality, saying, “So we never forget Fred Hampton, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell and other good men killed unjustly by Police in this country. R.I.P. Trayvon.” Mike spoke at length about Martin’s death, which he called an assassination, last week on MTV’s RapFix. Watch the episode here.
