On Pl3dge, Killer Mike passionately argues that street thugs are a potentially revolutionary force. On "American Dream" he offers his support for notorious drug barons like Big Meech, arguing, "In America the crooks get the castles/ Never seen a Rothschild or Rockefeller shackled." He backs his somewhat-twisted logic with better beats than 2008's Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II, rhyming over a sinuous track from Flying Lotus ("Swimming"), and sample-heavy sounds on "Ric Flair," "Burn," and "So Glorious." Agree with him or not, Killer Mike is a talent that can't be ignored.
