Killer Mike ft. Big Boi - My Chrome (Video)
I first heard this song on Big Boi's Purple Ribbon All-Stars Got Purp? Vol. 2 (an extremely underrated album by the way) and the first thing I thought was "single". Definitely my favorite track on the album and one of my favorite Killer Mike songs period.I wasn't much of a fan of Killer Mike back then. Aside from "Akshon (Yeah!)" and "A.D.I.D.A.S.", I hadn't really heard that much of dude. "My Chrome" was supposed to be the joint that really put Killer Kil on the map. Emphasis on "supposed to". The album underperformed, Killer Mike and Big Boi eventually had a falling out (which they've since settled) and Mike left the fold to go the indie route, landing a joint venture with Grand Hustle/Atlantic just last year. Now that's all good for Mike, but I always wished "My Chrome" had gotten the look it shoulda gotten, especially when I found out that a video was shot and it was directed by acclaimed video director Hype Williams. Seemed like such a waste...untill now. Props to The Crew for unearthing this gem.
