Watch Killer Mike's Awesome Video for "Reagan"
Atlanta MC Killer Mike has made a name for himself with his music videos, and his latest might be his best yet. Introduced as “A Rap Song by Killer Mike,” his recently released video for “Reagan” is comprised of stunning red, white, blue and black animation depicting the seedy effects of Ronald Reagan’s presidency according to Killer Mike.
And Killer Mike isn’t shy about expressing his feelings toward the late ex-president, equating him to Satan and mentioning how he’s glad he’s dead among some more pointed political statements. Reagan is clearly the main target of Killer Mike’s lyrics, but “Reagan” is just as much a sweeping indictment of politicians in general. He even calls out Obama, lumping him in with Reagan, Clinton and Bush.
