Revered rapper Killer Mike has dropped a new single and music video! The artist’s first solo offering in over a decade is called “Run” and features Young Thug and production by NO I.D.

The song and video, according to a recent press release, “…reframes American history to include Black history as a part of the nation’s history. The song . . . arrives paired with a stunning visual, portraying the fight for freedom in a captivating, visceral context, augmented by an intro monologue from Dave Chappelle inspired by the song’s themes. Directed by Montreal’s Adrian Villagomez, ‘Run’ represents the Just against the tyrannical, Black people and allied people up in arms together rising against the Nazi-esque secessionists that want to take the country back into the confederacy.”
