Killer Mike talks about receiving praise from Jay-Z for his latest album.
Killer Mike was the recent guest on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, where he reflected on his relationship with Jay-Z over the years, and revealed that he received praise from Roc Nation mogul for his latest album “Michael“.
“I be tripping out now when I wake up, get up, moving around and see a text from him just out of nowhere,” he said. “Like, ‘Peace God. I see what you did. Just sending some encouragement your way.’ He’s still a very grounded, cool human being. I appreciate all the love and encouragement.”
He continued, “As I was making the record, we sent it to him early and he sent back some real positive notes. He sent back a great compliment. He was like, ‘It feels like I went to my cousin’s house and watched a movie.’ I was really honored. I think it was about a year ago he sent that comment. And we delivered.”
Mike’s latest project is his sixth studio album, and first solo effort since 2012’s “RAP Music”. The project featured appearances from Future, Andre 3000, Young Thug, 6LACK, Ty Dolla Sign, 2 Chainz, CeeLo Green and more.
