Next month won’t only bring forth the oft-delayed third album in Killer Mike’s I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind series. The Atlanta spitter is also dropping a new mixtape 11 days prior to the album’s release. “At the Top” is his first offering from the tape, Bang x 3, which might be Mike’s way of thanking his fans for patiently waiting for PL3DGE. And if this track wasn’t good enough to make the album, then it’s sounding PL3DGE will be a monster. Because aside from the grating vocals on the hook, “At the Top” is Mike at his best as he spits aggressive, brazen rhymes from his king’s throne.
