Mike Bigga: "Swimming" f. Rock D.

The rapper formerly known as Killer Mike dropped this gem on us today, apparently from his upcoming I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind 3. On first listen, it's honestly hard to decide what to pay attention to: the rappers at work, or Flying Lotus' unbelievably lush production job. His synth parts buzz around like a swarm of fat bumblebees, laid on top of a bed of more vocal sounding tones. It's the kind of stuff that makes you hope his post-Cosmogramma victory lap doesn't come to an end any time soon. Luckily, Bigga and Rock D. don't slack on this track, bringing infectious energy to each of their verses, and laid-back soul to the chorus. Take a listen below.

A nice companion to the Flying Lotus joint. Would like to see FL work with more mainstream rappers.

On another note, this and the recent Madvillain joint are a part of Adult Swim's collabo w/ Kia, 8 Singles in 8 Weeks:

Between this and the Levi's series, indie heads should be in heaven.
