MFNW Kickoff Party: Killer Mike, Ural Thomas & the Pain

SAM CUSUMANO
5 pm, Friday August 15 | Free with MFNW VIP wristband or ticket from Dr. Marten.

10 NW 10th Ave.
 

[ATLIEN] Michael Render is not a subtle man. The Atlanta rapper—better known as Killer Mike—is hard to miss, both in stature and rhetoric. His most recent solo release, 2012’s R.A.P. Music, marked the beginning of a beautiful bromance with Brooklyn beat maestro El-P (see: Run the Jewels), whose booming, futuristic production turned out to be the perfect complement to Mike’s bludgeoning delivery. A blend of street-level storytelling, gangster braggadocio and political awareness all bundled into one jovial and energetic performer, Mike brings something to the table for everyone. Kicking off this MFNW kick-off show are Best New Band winners, vintage soul outfit Ural Thomas and the Pain.
